Hints

• Utilize your arms while trying to obtain the exact position of balance. That is, lower and raise the hands on and off the ground according to need.

• In the beginning practise near a wall which can be used to give support. Eventually, however, the practice should be done in the middle of the room. • While trying to find balance gaze at a fixed point directly in front of the face on the wall. Don't gaze downwards, since this brings loss of balance.

Breathing and awareness

Breathing should be normal throughout. All your attention should be on balance.
