Now stand on the right foot only and slowly raise the left foot behind.Your knees should now be bent slowly so that the lower side of the left leg becomes parallel to the ground. After bending your hips in the forward direction, lower down your body as much as possible. Hold for 3 to 4 seconds and then go back to the normal position. Repeat 8 to 10 times. When done repeat with the other leg.
