To do the Butterfly Pose, Anshuka sat on the floor with bent knees and feet pressed together. Then, she moved the knees up and down. While doing the pose, she straightened her spine and broadened her chest.

How to do Viparita Karani

Anshuka practised Viparita Karani by lying on the floor, legs raised upwards with the support of the wall and arms spread across the floor. She relaxed her body while doing this asana.

How to do Sarvangasana

To do Sarvangasana, Anshuka raised her lower body, pelvis and legs upwards with the support of the wall and balanced her body weight entirely upon her palms, the elbows, the neck and the back of the head.

How to do Brahmari Pranayama

For the last pose, Brahmari Pranayama, Anshuka sat in the Sukhasana with a straight back, thumbs inside her ears and the rest of the fingers placed across her face. One needs to feel the sensations inside their body while taking deep breaths and practising this pose.
