Anjaneyasana or Low-lung variation can be done anywhere with mere five square-foot of space. Step your right foot forward between your hands. With knee bent over your ankle, root your entire front foot like the image given above. Place your left foot behind and back knee down. Stretch your left knee back until you feel a stretch in the groin. On breathing in, bring your tailbone forward while lifting your torso. Rest your hands on your thigh. Lengthen your spine to the crown of the head. Hold for three seconds and then return to the tabletop position.
To perform Garudasana, inhale and extend your arms to make a T-shape. Exhale and bring the right arm underneath the left as you press the forearms together, keeping them perpendicular to the floor. Press the palms against each other or grab the opposite wrist. Lift the elbows slightly as bend the shoulders down the back.
To perform Sphinx Pose or Bhujangasana, lie down on your belly with your legs side by side. Rotate your thighs inward and your outer thighs towards the floor. Draw the tailbone towards the toes and press your toes into the mat. Place your shoulders just above your elbows, forearms parallel and palms down. Remain in this pose for 5-10 breaths.
To perform Balasana or Child’s Pose, spread your knees from the tabletop pose about as wide as the Yoga mat. Bring your toes towards one another. Rest your hip towards your heels. Stay in this position for five breaths.
To perform the Corpse’s Pose or Shavasana, lie on your back and let your body loose. Keep your arms at your sides with feet flopped open. Remain in this position for 5-10 minutes.
