First, take the staff pose (sitting on the floor, legs straight forward). Bend your left leg, then lower it to the floor. Place the foot on the inner side of the right thigh, forming a right angle between the right and left legs.
Now bend forward slowly, arms extended forward. If possible, wrap your hands around your left big toe. Tilt your head so that the chin is in the clavicular fossa. With each exhalation, bend down to the highest possible point.
Try to fully extend your spine. At the highest possible point, hold and exhale, pulling the stomach to the diaphragm. Then relax your stomach and exhale. After inhaling, hold your breath for a couple of seconds, and then tighten your stomach again. Do 6-7 of these breathing cycles. Do the same with the other leg.
