First, assume vajrasana. Both your arms should be placed on your knees.

  1.  Keep your neck and spinal cord straight.
  2.  Shut your eyes and begin focussing on your breathing and your body.
  3.  Take a deep breath and without allowing the elbow to bend, bring your hands above your shoulders.
  4.  Slowly exhale and reach down to touch the ground while your head and both your hands.
  5.  Let your upper torso relax and remain in this position for a while. The neck should be kept straight between the arms.
  6.  To finish, you should exhale and place your palms on your knees.


Avoid practice of this pose if you suffer from vertigo, slipped disc, high blood pressure and heart-related problems.


  1.  It strengthens the muscles.
  2.  It helps in the extension of the neck, arms and spine.
  3.  Practising this pose helps improve the circulation of blood to the scalp, face and brain. It gives a rice glow to the face.
  4.  This pose helps in regulating the adrenal glands.
  5. The hare pose is also beneficial to the reproductive organs.
