The fingers of the hands should be interlocked behind the back of the head. The hands should be wrapped around the head; they should not be placed under the head. The hands should be adjusted so that they firmly support the head.
The forearms and elbows of both arms should lie flat on the floor. The distance between the elbows should be the same as the distance between the elbow and interlocked fingers of each hand (at the back of the head). Thus the forearms will form two sides of an equilateral triangle, the distance between the two elbows forming the other side. This is the most stable base that supports the body in all directions.
