Start in staff pose, with your feet stretched out in front of you. Take a deep breath, bend your knees and sit on your feet. You can start on your toes, but if it is available to you can put your heels down. Take your feet apart from each other. When you get in this position with your knees bent, your body will lean forward, and your lower back will stretch backwards. Your body will do this automatically to gain balance. This is normal; if you are not able to put your heels down, you can stay on your toes to achieve more balance and until your body gets used to this pose.
