1. Firstly begin with the Mountain Pose or the Tadasana.
2. Once in the mountain pose, bend forward at your hips as you slowly exhale and let your hands move down to touch the ground.
3. Slowly inhale and rise up to let only your fingertips touch the ground while your back remains parallel to the ground.
4. Arch your spine a little and open up the chest to allow the sternum to reach the floor.
