A. From the Downward Facing Hero Pose, inhale and take the arms behind you, interlocking the fingers while pulling the arms upwards twisting the shoulder blades.
B. Here in Bowing Yoga Mudra, while the face is still close to the paddle board, the arms and the shoulders are stretched upwards behind you locking the fingers in a mudra while the breathing is slow and steady to keep the body in good balance.
C. Remain here for about 8 breaths or more if comfortable. Go slow on the breathing as the fast breathing will bring imbalance to the body causing imbalance on the board.
D. Inhale and release taking the torso up and come to sit back in Vajrasana taking a few breaths to relax.
A. Releasing from Vajrasana, come to move the torso forward while placing the palms on the floor in front of you while still resting the knees on the floor.
B. Moving forward bring the torso parallel to the floor to come to Bharmanasana or Table Top Pose.
Make sure the distance between the knees and the distance between the palms are same to avoid imbalance.
C. Slowly getting a feel of the body and maintaining the balance, keep a slow pace with the breathing to remain here for about 12 breaths.
D. Look down at the paddle board while doing so and make sure the core muscles are used to keep the spine and the shoulders in balance, while also in alignment.
E. Here again this pose will help gain confidence and bring about calmness in the body, while connecting to the breath.
