To start with lies face down keeping forearms on the floor and hands clasped. Now, making a table-top kind of posture extend your legs behind your torso and rise up on the toes. Keeping your back straight, tighten your core body and try to hold your body intact for 40 to 60 seconds.
Stand erect with parallel feet just a little wider than your waist width. Now, making a hinge to your hip and keeping your back straight and chest up (As if you are watching a wall clock) dip down till thighs get parallel to the floor. Try to grip in your heels into the floor during the whole of a dip in and rise up.
