Your hands should be placed alongside your body with palms facing upward. While breathing slowly focus on every part of your body starting with feet upwards. Relax your body as you do so. As you focus on your feet, knees thighs, and move upward breathe slowly and gently relaxing each potion as your concentration travels upwards. Breathe gently and slowly while even focusing on every breath. Remain in the position for about 10-20 minutes.
