Stand with both feet together. Move your left leg to your left and place your feet as far away as possible. Turn your left foot by 90 degrees and rotate your body to the left. Support yourself with a firmly placed right foot. Hold both hands in namaskara position (one palm over the other with outstretched fingers) and raise them. Bend your left knee at 90 degrees, placing it over your left foot while maintaining your right leg straight. Bend backward to take back your hands to make an arch comprising hands, neck, back, and right leg. Look upwards and hold on for some time, breathing normally. Return to the original position in reverse order. Relax for a while and repeat the asana on the other side.
