Breathe easily then on an exhale stretch out the hands and extend until you are grasping the toes. The right big toe is in between the right thumb and first two fingers and the same with the opposite hand. Extend the spine and bend down from the pelvic region, extending the arms from the shoulders. Pull the trunk forward and try and touch the forehead to the knees. Stay here for thirty seconds, trying to bring your elbows to rest on the floor. Breathe easily and make you’re your knees are not rising up off the floor. You should eventually be able to rest the chin on the shins beyond the knees. Inhale and rise back up.
