2.) Take your forehead and rest it to the floor and let your hands stretch back towards your feet, staying relaxed in through the motion.

3.) Close your eyes and relax, inhale and exhale for about 10-20 seconds letting your stomach press down on your thighs with each inhale.

4.) Hold this position for as long as you are able to and then return back to the starting position.

Tips :
