So it's a bound angle pose the main benefit is it's a seated and hip opener poses to rest of the benefits come along with their types and practice. So practice with me step by step. Every asana they have different stages according to your Body. Which we call a variety, so there are the amateur variety, middle variety, advance variety.

So here I will clarify a learner's variety and middle of the road variety. On the off chance that you can do the tenderfoot varieties to do so further practice what you can accomplish for you for the advancement which is middle of the road varieties. Before going to start our practice the contraindications must apply. So what are those contraindications to having safe practice and knees people who have the knee injuries, people have ankle injuries, people who have the weak hips or injuries in the lower back sacrum or pain in their tailbone should avoid this pose. If it's fine then you can enjoy the pose.

So the getting into the pose is very important for these extending both legs to the front. This pose known as dandasana starts poses standing next to the front feet about hip-width distance. Now tilting right foot to the right bringing right hands under right inner thighs. This is very important for opening the hip. So I'm giving the external rotations on my femur bone to open my hip bone as rotations. Hold my thighs back bending heel close to my groin. Same I'm going to do with my left tilting foot to the left giving the rotation from my femur bone bringing hands-on Under my inner thighs and pulling my left thigh.

You can see your hips are open more than your normal positions. Okay now from here moving heel closer to the groin and from here internalizing the fingers and bringing hands under the feet, pressing feet down falling fingers after giving a further extension. You know I can see my back is completely straight, straighten your back shoulders rolling back pressing your both thighs down towards the mat.

So this was a level one. Level one another variations move your feet a little bit to the front so the gap will be about half feet or one fit something and this pose will strengthen your inner thighs and will give you a nice stretch in your glutes which will release the sciatic nerves. From here inhale and lengthen the spine holding the ankles or shin keeping the back straight with exhalation started leaning forward extending one arms fingers in cup shape standing other arms fingers in a cup shape.

After a few breath inhaling coming back. So breath that you were taking in was six to eight breath now the intermediate variation, you stay with your legs instead of your hands under your next like this. So wrap your hands around your feet with inhalation head up to pull from your lower back, lengthening your spine push your chest forward with exhalation start pushing your thighs down towards the mat pushing your thighs down towards the mat to give more further extension start pulling your forearms upward and pressing your thighs down towards the mat.
