Variation

Take the same starting position as the basic technique - vajrasana.

Hold the arms behind the back and clasp the right wrist with the left hand. Relax the whole body and close the eyes.

Exhale and slowly bend forwards until the forehead touches or is near the ground. Repeat the same procedure as already described for the final position of the basic technique. After some time slowly raise the trunk while inhaling and return to the starting position.

Note: Apart from the technique all other details are essentially the same as given for the basic form of shashankasana.
