My body feels limp and loose, so I can move around more easy while doing school work. It also changes the mood of the person, usually it makes them happy. Most people lose all  stress while practicing yoga poses or the breathing meditations. While in the moment, there is no worrying about the past or future.

The meditation part helps to clear the mind.
