Yoga position to enhance one's ability to concentrate

Mountain Pose: Stand tall with feet together, grounding down through the feet and reaching the arms overhead. This pose helps to improve posture and mental focus by bringing awareness to the alignment of the body.

Tree Pose: Stand on one leg and place the sole of the other foot on the inner thigh or calf, avoiding the knee joint. Bring the hands to prayer position at the heart center or extend them overhead. Tree pose helps improve balance and concentration by requiring focus on a single point. 

Eagle Pose: Stand tall and cross one leg over the other, then wrap the top foot around the calf of the standing leg. Cross the arms at the elbows and wrists, then bring the palms together. Eagle pose challenges balance and concentration while also stretching the shoulders and upper back. 

Staff Pose: Sit on the floor with legs extended in front of you and spine tall. Place hands on the floor beside the hips and engage the core. Staff pose helps to improve posture and focus by strengthening the back and core muscles. 

Seated Forward Bend: Sit on the floor with legs extended in front of you, then fold forward from the hips, reaching for the feet or shins. Keep the spine long and gaze forward. Seated forward bend calms the mind and stretches the spine, hamstrings, and shoulders. 

Cobra Pose: Lie on the stomach with palms under the shoulders and elbows close to the body. Inhale and lift the chest off the floor, keeping the shoulders relaxed. Cobra pose opens the heart and chest, improving circulation and increasing mental alertness. 

Child's Pose: Kneel on the floor with toes together and knees apart, then sit back on the heels and fold the torso forward, resting the forehead on the floor. Extend the arms forward or relax them by the sides. Child's pose helps to calm the mind and release tension in the back and shoulders. 

Dancer's Pose: Stand tall and shift weight onto one leg, then bend the opposite knee and reach back to grab the foot or ankle with the hand. Extend the other arm forward for balance. Dancer's pose improves concentration and balance while opening the chest and shoulders.
