Stay with the resistance for a few breaths and then release and relax for a couple rounds of breaths. (One inhale and one exhale equates as one round of breath.) Repeat this action three to five times while holding the resistance for a few breaths in between. Notice that the
entire core may shake as it is working to draw the thighs in towards the chest while the palms resist the strength of the legs. Allow the breath to flow at an even pace.
Check with your doctor before performing any form of exercise including yoga and breathing techniques. Always honor your body. If a posture gives you pain, gently come out.
