From Malasana, tuck your torso between your legs and place your hands on the ground, fingers facing forward.
Lift your hips, tuck your shoulders, one at a time, under your thighs above the knees, strongly draw your navel towards your spine, round your upper back. Lean your weight back onto your hands. Place the back of the thighs high up on your upper arms, exhale, lift your feet up and cross your ankles.
Press into your hands and strongly hug your thighs to your upper arms, gaze slightly forward.
