Tips: To see a larger image of any picture below, click the picture. It is not necessary to look exactly like the picture shown. Approximate a pose as best as you can, or follow the modified version of the pose (if available) if a pose is too difficult. Poses should get easier over time with regular practice. The goal is to eventually look like the pictures below.

1. Kneel down with knees wide apart, forehead on the floor, palms together above head in prayer position.
2.  Do Long Deep Breathing through your nose. Inhale down the sides of the spine, exhale up the center of the spine. As you exhale simultaneously contract the lower muscles, rectum (anus), sex organ, and navel (belly button).
