Spread your yoga mat.
Bend your legs at the knees, kneel down and sit on your legs, with the buttocks resting on your heels.
Make sure to spread your ankles underneath you, pointing the soles of your feet upwards.
Take a deep breath and sit up straight, your hands resting on your thighs, palms down.
As you exhale, bend forward, sliding your hands onto the ground, until your chest is flat on your thighs.
Now bring your arms to the side of your body.
Line them up with your legs. The palms should face upwards.
Hold your breath in that position for as long as it is comfortable and come back up as you exhale.
Let your shoulders and hands go limp, and concentrate on breathing instead.
