  • Sit on your yoga mat with the legs outstretched and slightly apart from each other. Keep the hands on the floor beside you and stretch your spine to sit up straight. Now, move the toes of both feet forwards and backward with the heels and rest of the legs motionless. Slowly rotate both the feet from the ankle together in the same direction clockwise and then anti-clockwise.
  • Bend the right knee and clasp the hands under the right thigh. Straighten the right leg while inhaling, bens at the knee while exhaling. Do not allow the heels or toes to touch the floor. Repeat with your left leg.
  • Raise the right leg from the ground and rotate the leg from the knee in a large circular movement. The upper leg and the trunk should be completely straight. This should be done both clockwise and anti-clockwise. Repeat with the left leg.
  • Sit with your feet under your buttocks. Extend your arms forward and the hands should be open with the palms facing upwards. Bend the arms at the elbows and touch the fingers to the shoulders. Throughout the practice keep the upper arms parallel to the floor and steady and the elbows at the shoulder level. Place the fingers of the right hand on the right shoulders and the left hand on the left shoulders. Fully rotate both elbows at the same time in a large circle. Try to touch the elbows in the front and stretch the arms in all the directions.
