Sit erect with your legs stretched out. Breathe out and bend your knees while pulling your heels towards your pelvis.
Press the soles of your feet close together and make sure your knees drop to the sides comfortably without excessive force.
Bring your heels as close to your pelvis as you can. Then with your thumb and first finger, hold the big thumbs of your feet.
Make sure your back is erect and your weight is equally distributed on the floor.
Remember that your knees should never be forced on the ground.
You can try to lower the heads of the thigh bones towards the floor. This will automatically bring your knees down. Hold the pose for about one to five minutes.
Inhale, lift your knees and extend your legs and relax.
