Stresses of college can either be described in an eye roll, resolved by chocolate, or are just unexplainable. I found myself quickly overwhelmed this semester and knew that hiding from my problems were not a good resolution. Now, a crucial part of my daily routine is yoga.

Always keep good posture and a flat back.
Keep these tips in mind as you fluidly move between beginners poses.
