- Raise your arms up around your ears and soften your shoulders.
- After 15 -20 seconds. Release and relax.
- At beginner level, perform it near a wall. Stand with your back to the wall. Adjust your position relative to the wall so that when you bend into the position, your tailbone just touches and is supported by the wall.

- Always work within your own range of limits and abilities. If you have any medical concerns, consult with your doctor before practicing.
