Description of the asana

  1. Squat down and bring your arms between your knees. Place your palms down flat on the floor in front of you, shoulder-width apart, with fingers splayed and pointing lightly out ward. Then bend your elbows out to the sides, making the backs of your arms into shelves for your knees to rest on.
  2. Choose a point on the floor in front of you on which to focus. Inhale, then while you retain the breath, lean toward this point, transferring your weight to your hands and lifting your toes up. Exhale and hold the pose for three or four deep breaths.
