1. Take Tadasana
2. Raise the right leg, grab it with your hands and press the sole to the inner surface of the left thigh so that the heel is closer to the groin and the toe is facing down.
3. Stand on the left leg, trying to ensure that the bent right leg is in the same plane with the body.
4. Join the palms of the hands in front of the chest in the Indian gesture of greeting (namaste). Inhale and raise your hands up without separating your palms.
5. Balance on one leg from a few seconds to one minute. Breathe deeply.
6. Drop your hands and return to Tadasana. Repeat the pose the same time on the other leg.
The pose tones the muscles of the legs, develops the vestibular apparatus, and soothes the nervous system.
