Summer means fun! For many of you, summer break marks the end of the school year and moving on to more fun adventures and activities. We at BYJU’S love the summer break too! We recently organised the BYJU’S Summer Camp – a month-long camp with activities, contests and lots of fun! (Hope you enjoyed the camp this year. In case you’d missed out, don’t worry, we still have the activities waiting for you to explore. Go check them out here.)
However, summer this year looks a bit different due to the ongoing pandemic. Staying indoors, maintaining social distance and following COVID protocols are the right ways to keep ourselves safe and healthy. However, the temptation to give up on physical activities and become a couch potato can be quite strong! How do you get past that phase and stay active while being at home?
The answer is YOGA!
Yoga has lots of benefits for you! Practising yoga every day can help you stay fit, be more mindful and help you study better. Yoga time can also turn into a dedicated fun time by practicing it with your family.
So roll out your Yoga mats today and let’s get started with these asanas!
Sun Salutation or Surya Namaskar is an exercise of 12 asanas that are inspired by the sun’s movements and combined with rhythmic breathing.
Benefits: Surya Namaskar is a great warm-up exercise. It helps you stretch your entire body and move every joint and major muscles. The smooth transition between the asanas will help you concentrate better. After completion of each round, you will notice how relaxed and happy you feel.
Benefits: Legs up the wall pose is a great way to relax. It helps with blood circulation and calms your nerves.
Benefits: This asana is very beneficial to your chest, lower back, and your thigh muscles.
Benefits: This slow breathing exercise is loaded with benefits. It helps you calm your mind, makes you more observant and deep breathing gives you a full boost of energy!
Yoga is good for your body, mind, and soul. So start practicing these asanas every day. And while you’re at it, don’t rush! Take it slow and enjoy the journey!

Books are Tanaya Goswami’s first love and cheesecakes come a close second. Talking about movies, music, calligraphy, politics, and Elon Musk will get you listed under the friends’ section of her diary. Ever since moving on from her job as an English lecturer, she spends her time at BYJU’S crafting stories filled with emotion and sprinkled with sarcasm. Outside of work, she’s either learning something new (French, most recently!) or is curled up with a book and a cup of coffee. She firmly believes that discovering what you don’t know is the key to knowledge and is constantly working towards improving herself.

My mentor Raksha Chettri has been my pillar of strength from day one. It is her constant guidance and encouraging words that have helped me become a lifelong learner. A big thanks to her and BYJU'S - The Learning App.
BYJU'S app has helped me understand Maths and Science in a fun way. Now, I study from the app, understand concepts, and then go through my textbooks.
BYJU'S is the bridge that connects my imagination to my reality. The engaging study videos with real-life examples help me understand concepts not only from an exam point of view but as a lesson for life.
