- Vriksasana (Tree Pose): Stand with your spine completely straight and take a deep breath in. Lift up your left foot and exhale as you place it firmly against the inside of your thigh. Slowly lift up your arms above your head in a prayer position, take deep breaths, focus on balancing, and hold this pose for some time.
- Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose): You can begin Bhujangasana by lying face down on your mat. Place your hands’ palms down and lift your head and chest while you inhale deeply.
