It is considered as the best asana among all the asanas, as it activates most of the important glands and help improve their function. Even old books on Yoga proclaim importance of this asana.

Step 1   : Exhale and inhaling start raising both the legs upward and stop when they make angle of 90 degree with the floor. Attain the Uttanpadasana posture.

Step 2   :  Exhaling raise the waist and push the legs backward over the head
Step 3   :  Support the waist with both the hands, using your hands get the legs, waist and back in one straight line and stabilize them in this position, stretch the toes towards sky. Keep the sight on the toes. Continue normal breathing.

To come out of this posture, just bend your knees, curve your back and slowly return to lying on the floor while exhaling. First bend your knees, put the palms on the floor, then curving the spine, gradually unfold it the way one unrolls a carpet. When your entire back touches the floor, straighten the knees, take a deep breath and slowly lower your legs to the ground while breathing out.

First of all I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I've had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts
out. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like
the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure
out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Appreciate it!

Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks
