  2. Move your feet slightly apart to a comfortable position and close the eyes.

  3. Head should be at the center, make sure it doesn’t fall to one side.

  4. Stop any physical movement and try to relax the whole body.

  5. Concentrate on your breath and slowly your body will become relaxed (a good way to do it is to mentally start counting your breath).

  6. Begin to relax every part of the body beginning with the toes and moving up to the head.

  7. Stay in the posture for at least 2 minutes after the entire body is relaxed and breathe deeply.
