• 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.
Practise for as long as time permits and for as long as you feel comfortable.
Time of practice
All three asanas can be practised at any time during the day. There are no restrictions.
There are no obvious limitations on people who should not practise these asanas. You must use your own discretion.
These three asanas help to bring nervous equilibrium. They develop the sense of balance and develop coordination between different parts of the body. They all develop the power of mental concentration, which is nee ded to perform them.
