Its Steps

  • In Padmasana, begin with your closing your eyes, and then relax the entire body.
  • Put one wrist behind your back using the other hand.
  • Breathe deeply, and then, when exhaling, bend your body toward the front while keeping a straight spine.
  • Make sure that the forehead is on the floor, or as close to it as you can.
  • Remain in a relaxed position Breathe slow and slowly.
  • Pay attention to the tension of your heels against the abdomen.
  • Keep your body in a position that you can sit in a comfortable way without straining your joints or the back.
  • Return slowly to your starting position.


Begin by locating a comfortable place to sit. Breathe deeply and allow the air to fill your lung and widen your chest. After exhaling, you should engage your core muscles, and slowly begin to fold your body forward, making sure to maintain a steady and breathing throughout the move.

Duration and Awareness

Hold the posture for between 30 seconds to a minute, allowing your breathing to lead you further to the stretching. Maintain awareness of the sensation in your spine, shoulders, and abdomen. Relax into the feeling of gentle tension when you relax into the position.
