Inhale deeply.

While slowly exhaling bend the body forwards. Firstly let the head bend forwards without muscular effort.

Then let the trunk progressively bend forwards. Let the arms remain limp through the forward bend so that they dangle vertically towards the floor.

While bending try to imagine that your body has no bones or muscles.

At the end of exhalation, your head and trunk should point towards the floor.

You should tiy to let your head hang as closely as possible to the knees, but without any strain.

Remain immobile in this position and breathe normally a number of times.
