Yoga for Students

I am appearing for IIT and various other exams so i need to work for long hours but i feel very sleepy most of the times. please give me some techniques to minimise energy loss and to derive maximum sleep in less time (say 3hours daily)

There are many techniques in yoga that help to stimulate the brain and nervous system and this in turn helps to improve memory and concentration. One form of yoga technique that is instrumental in concentration is known as Dharana. Dharana is known as the art of concentration. By keeping your mental processes in place without allowing it to wander, mental stability is assured and mental strength is increased.

The open legged forward bend is a vital pose in calming your senses and enhancing the level of your concentration. The pose is also useful in improving your powers of recall as it helps to increase blood circulation to the brain. To do the open legged forward bend, stand tall with your feet apart, approximately three feet apart. Swivel on the balls of the feet to slightly turn the heels outward. Try to imagine that you are squashing a soft ball between the thighs all the way through this pose; it will help you to keep the balance. Raise the chest towards the ceiling and inhale. Keep a count of three or five and exhale. When you exhale slowly bend forward from the hips without bending your back till you are able to touch the floor with your palms. Take a deep breath again and straighten the spine.
Yoga Tips for Students
Yoga confers benefits to the body, mind and spirit, and these benefits are best realized through a regular personal practice.
Maintaining a regular practice is helped if you put aside the same period or periods of time each day. It is more important than the duration of the practice.
Always practice and come to class with an empty stomach. Otherwise, some of the poses can interfere with digestion. Also be sure to attend to personal hygiene prior to class.

Listen to your body, and if you feel burning sensations or otherwise injury, stop. Don't wait for the teacher's instructions.

Let go of your own ego, and desire to impress the teacher and other people in class. Use each class to maximize your learning.
Remember that an essence of a yoga practice is the study of self. Avoid observing other students and comparing yourself to them.
How deeply you go into a pose doesn't matter as much as how deeply you go within yourself. Use your inner attention.
Every good practice should teach you something, and result in a sense of innocence and liberation from daily concerns.
In choosing a teacher, find a person who engenders your respect, appears to operate with compassion, has a deep knowledge of the subject, and with whom you connect.

Try to learn the yoga tradition including the yamas, niyamas, and Pantanjali's Yoga Sutras and other seminal writing.

Don't limit your practice to your best poses, but work on poses which are difficult as well. Try to have a well rounded practice.
When beginning yoga, there is not substitute for working with a good teacher as a book or video cannot provide you with responsive feedback.
Be sure to inform your teacher of any physical problems that may be helped or made worse by doing yoga. Yoga can have great therapeutic effects, and an experienced and well-trained teacher can help people realize these benefits for their particular problems.
