In this asana, the focal points of concentration are the feet. In this asana, be aware of your breathing and feel the belly

moving in and out. A relaxed attitude is a must for this asana. While trying to touch the toes with your hands from the back, do not strain. Listen to the body movements. Do only as much as you can and relax. 

Steps to follow (Baddhapadmasana) :

1. Sit the way as you do in Padmasana, by touching the abdomen with both the heels.
2. Place your hands behind your back and hold  the toe of the right leg with the left hand and  the left toe with the right hand.
3. Close your eyes and watch your breath calmly.

Benefits :

# This asana enhances intelligence and provides peace, purity and stability.
# It is good for the spine, chest and for general health.
