How to do it:
– Sit comfortably, cross-legged. Keep your back straight, place two hands on your knees with palms down and thumb and forefinger together.
– Yoga posture with back perpendicular to the ground will help reduce back pain. Close your eyes, concentrate your mind, slowly inhale through your nose. Compress air in abdomen about 2-3 seconds and then slowly exhale. After 1 second, slowly breathe again until 10, 20 or 30 times.
If your hips are tight, do not sit flat on the floor; instead of that, prop up on a blanket, two blankets, a bolster, a block, or a meditation pillow.
