This posture is performed kneeling with a straight spine. The big toes are together and the heels and knees are slightly apart. Lightly rest the palms or the backs of the hands onto the thighs. Remain in this posture for five minutes breathing slowly through the nose whilst focussing on drawing up the lower abdominal muscles and maintaining a straight spine.
