    Standing forward bend

    Begin by keeping your legs hip-distance apart. Now bend your knees and hinge forward at the hips, not the waist. Lay your chest on your upper thighs as you allow your head to fall towards the ground. Now slowly straighten your legs without locking your knees. Hold yourself in this position for a few seconds and keep taking deep breaths. Then, go back to the normal standing position.

    Stand in Tadasana pose. Now bend your knees as if you are sitting on a chair and lift your chest up to the sky. As you do so, raise your hands with your shoulders relaxed and ab muscles held in. Try to sit back as far as you can. Remain in this position for 5–8 breaths before going back to the initial standing pose.
