Modern Life Skills & Yoga
The modern day life has evolved significantly and the skills needed to perform better needs to master these skills.

Sidhharrth S Kumaar, Life Coach & Founder, NumroVani has enlisted a few yoga poses to master modern day life skills:

Critical Thinking and Problem-Solving

Vrksasana (Tree Pose)
Vrksasana, or Tree Pose, is a great way to improve your critical thinking skills because it forces you to focus on one leg at a time, which makes you think more analytically and creatively. The mental process of studying and solving difficult problems is mirrored in this stance, which requires the intellect to coordinate muscular movements and establish stability.

Garudasana (Eagle Pose)
Wrapping one's arms and legs around one another in Garudasana, also known as the Eagle Pose, calls for concentration and coordination. It challenges the brain to solve problems in order to acquire and maintain balance, which in turn develops analytical abilities that are useful in many aspects of daily life.

Emotional Intelligence

Sukhasana (Easy Pose) with Pranayama (Breathing Exercises)
Practicing deep breathing or alternate nostril breathing while sitting in Sukhasana (Easy Pose) with Pranayama (Breathing Exercises) can help individuals become more conscious of their emotions. This synergy improves EQ by calming the mind, which in turn helps with emotional regulation and comprehension, and by encouraging empathy. 

Balasana (Child's Pose):

This resting position, known as Balasana (Child's Pose), promotes self-reflection and the letting go of pent-up emotions. Balasana may help people become more self-aware and emotionally intelligent by relaxing the mind and lowering stress levels, which in turn opens the door to their inner feelings.

Adaptability & Flexibility
Ardha Chandrasana (Half Moon Pose)
Ardha Chandrasana, also known as Half Moon Pose, is an adaptable and flexible yoga posture that encourages balance on one leg while extending the other and arm. The concentration required to hold this position can improve one's flexibility in everyday life.

Parivrtta Trikonasana (Revolved Triangle Pose):

This twisting posture, Parivrtta Trikonasana (Revolved Triangle Pose), expands the chest and increases spinal flexibility. By testing one's balance and twisting abilities at the same time, it encourages mental and physical flexibility, two qualities that are essential for adaptability.

Virabhadrasana III (Warrior III Pose)

The mind, core, and legs are all strengthened in the difficult balancing stance known as Virabhadrasana III, or Warrior III stance. Maintaining this position calls both a strong will and the kind of mental fortitude that can weather storms. Resilience is a product of mental and physical strength, both of which can be enhanced via Warrior III practice.

Time Management
Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations)
Surya Namaskar, also known as Sun Salutations, is a flow of yoga postures that teaches the value of regularity, efficiency, and rhythm, all of which are useful in managing one's time effectively. Sun Salutations are a great way to practice time management since they help you to organize your day and focus on what's most important.

Staying Strong
Tadasana (Palm Tree or Mountain Pose)
Improve your posture and concentration with Tadasana, also known as Mountain Pose. One way to improve time management and maintain focus while going about everyday tasks is to practice Tadasana with attentive breathing. This will help one feel more grounded and present.
