Curl your right leg around your left. Reach behind so your right elbow is by your ear and your left arm by your side.
Standing with your feet hip-width apart, look forward and fix your gaze on a focal point. Shift your weight to your right foot, inhale, and raise your left foot, placing the sole on your inner thigh. Exhale. Place your hands in the prayer position.
With fingers touching behind your back, inhale deeply. As you exhale, gently lower your head. Hold for a few breaths. Raise your head. Repeat on left side.
Continue to hold the position, but now draw your shoulders back and raise your head. Exhale and lower your hands and foot. Swap legs and repeat the three phases.
Maintaining the same position as phase one, close your eyes and gently drop your head as you inhale deeply. Hold this pose for several breaths.
