Bend the knees beside the ears as you roll down. Cross one foot over the other and pull them back over the top of the head. Hold taking quick short breaths.
Roll back and open the legs in the splits. If possible grab the toes. This posture is often welcomed after a posture that is so suppressing to the internal organs.
