restorative pose during a sequence.

you, with your elbows just in front of the shoulders.<

Performing the Pose
1Widen your legs so that they are open and roll your feet so that your
heels are pointed in and your entire leg is in contact with the floor.
Squeeze your buttocks together and press into the floor.Lift up in your
chest and bend your elbows to clash each elbow with the opposite palm.

your body if you need to for comfort. Hold the pose for several breaths
