Pre position
 
Standing Position.
Procedure
 1.
 
Take the left foot forward and place the left foot on the floor atth e maximum distance from the initial position.
 2.
 
Bring both the hands together, join the palms and place themon the knees of the left leg. Bend the left leg in the knee insuch a way that the thigh and the calf come in 90 degrees.Keep the right leg straight.
 3.
 
Raise the joined hands up and take them back above the headand then without bending the hands in the elbows, bend the
 
head backward and keep the sight backward down.
 
Position
 
The front leg should be bent in 90 degrees angle and the back legshould be straight. Keep the toes frontward. The back leg, the back,the neck and both the hands form a very good arch in this positionand this forming of arch is desirable, too. The body should be weighedbackward and keeping the arms near the ears, the neck should alsobe bent downwards.
 
Releasing
 1.
 
Start bringing the body forward and place the hands on theknee. Keep sight to the front.
 2.
 
Straighten the knee and restore the hands to their originalplace.
 3.
 
Restore the left leg to its place and take up standing position.
 
Duration
 
It should be maintained for at least one minute, to have the desiredstrain and benefits; with practice, duration can be increased to threeminutes.
 
InternalEffects
 
In this asana the joints of the legs, the waist, the spinal column andthe neck get curved in opposite direction. As a result of this, the bloodcirculation to these joints is regulated. The spinal column becomeselastic and its functioning improves. There is pressure on the digestiveorgans and the belly gets stretched, which promotes their functioning.
 
Precaution
 
The process of the backward bending should be slow and controlled,else it becomes difficult to maintain the balance. The loss of balancemay prove injurious to certain parts of the body. Slow and controlledmovements help in having halt at the needed point and avoiding theunwanted strain.
 
Note:
This asana is to be repeated for the right leg also.
