Hold this position for about 30 seconds or for as long as possible without causing discomfort.
While in the position keep the arms parallel to the floor, maintain the neck in alignment with the spine and keep the legs straight.
To come out, exhale and bring the legs, torso and head down to the floor and rest.
This posture helps to stretch the shoulders, chest, abdomen and thighs. It also strengthens the muscles of the lower back and gluteus.
