When working on this pose, it is advisable to start by rotating your legs in and out and letting them fall slowly on the sides. Then, repeat the movement with your hands. The next move implies your spine. Rotate it by turning your head from side to side. Letting gravity embrace you, stretch yourself in a similar manner as if somebody was pulling your head away from your feet. Keep your shoulders down and as away from the feet as possible.
