Step by  step instruction

  1. Stand so that the roots of your toes touch and your heels are as close to each other as possible. Spread your toes and raise the arches of your feet. At first, swing slightly back and forth until you achieve an even distribution of body weight on the feet.
  2. Tighten your thighs and lift your knees, but without squeezing your abdominal muscles. Thigh the thighs slightly inwards and gently push the buttocks forward. Imagine rooting through your ankles and feeling the energy from the ground move up through your legs, abdomen, torso, head, and all the way to the top of your head.
  3. Open your chest and let your shoulder blades fall down. Let your hands hang behind your torso.
  4. Center your head just above your pelvis with your jaw parallel to the floor. Get your head out of the door. The neck is soft and the tongue, soft and wide, lies still at the bottom of the mouth. Soften the look. Either look into the distance (from the back of your head) or close your eyes. Say to yourself, “I am” (without any attribute).
  5. This Yoga pose is most often used in preparation and as an entry and exit from standing asanas, but it is also an independent position, and we stay in it for half to one minute, breathing quietly.
