Apanasana – Knee Hug Yoga Pose

Start by lying flat on the floor with the feet together.

Breathe in, bend the knees and raise both legs towards the chest.

Breathe out and hold the knees as close as possible to the chest.

Ease the pressure and hold the posture for about 30 seconds rocking from side to side gently and breathing normally.
