Technique :-
  1. Stand erect with legs together, toes together, hands by the side of the thighs, gaze in front.

  2. Now raise both hands from infront towards the sky. Palms facing in front.

  4. After maintaining it or some time, slowly return to the original position.

  5. Abdomen will be towards sky and the whole body will take the form of a bow.



Remember:-
