Try to hold the left ankle by passing the right arm over the left side of the left knee. At the same time, exhale and take the left arm behind the back and press the right side under the ribs. This has to be done by twisting the trunk to the back as much as possible. Maintain this posture for a few seconds, breathe normally and increase the duration to two minutes gradually. Repeat the same process on the other side of the same duration.
