Method: Start out on your knees and palms. Place the knees below the hips and the palms beneath the shoulders. Straighten your knees by pushing your hips up to create this stance. Put your feet in an inverted "V" position. Your hands should remain shoulder-width apart. Make an effort to contact the ground with your heels. Hold the posture for a short while.
2. Balasana (Child’s Pose)
Method: Sit on your heels while knelt down on the mat. Exhale, then inhale again while bending your upper body forward. Allow your pelvis to rest on the heels while lowering your forehead.
Method: As you exhale, bend your upper body forward. Keep your shoulders and neck relaxed while lowering your head. If you're just starting off, bend your knees a little. Next to your feet, place your palms.
Method: Stretch both legs forward as you sit down on the ground. Breathe out as you stoop forward and grasp your big toes with both hands.
5. Vrikshasana – Tree Pose
Method: Start in Samasthithi, maintain your feet together, stand tall, fold your right leg so that it is perpendicular to your left leg, inhale, and bring your palms together in the Namaskar mudra in front of your chest. Throughout the entire movement, keep your spine straight.
6. Meditation technique - Swaas Dhyan (Breath Meditation)
Method: The time it takes for your inhalation and exhalation should be in a ratio of 6:6, meaning that if you inhale in six counts, you need to exhale in six counts (Prapthi Mudra). Straighten your back and close your eyes. Pay attention to the passage of your breath through and out of your nostrils.
