Lie down on the mat on your abdomen, hands resting on either side of the body. Bend your knees and bring your feet as close as possible to the buttocks. Inhaling deeply, stretch your hands backwards, lifting your chest and head. Tilt your head backwards as you hold your ankles with your hands. Breathing normally, stretch backwards as much as possible while bending your body back to resemble a bow. Hold the pose to a count of 8. Exhale and relax to come back to the initial position.
