Sitting again on your calves and ankles, take a deep inhalation and hold your breath as you lower your head to the floor taking the prayer position. Hold your breath for about 5 seconds and then exhale as you relax and come back up to a sitting position. (Those with high blood pressure should not do this exercise). You may do this three times and then come down into the prayer position consciously allowing all your body to relax for from one minutes to ten minutes according to your degree of comfort and amount of time you have available.

Contraindications: Serious lower back problems, High blood pressure, detached retina.

Benefits: This exercise relaxes all the muscles of the back, shoulders and neck and allows for greater flow to the head and eyes. It is a wonderfully rejuvenating position for all the body and mind.
