TOTAL RELAXATION WITH SELF-AWARENESS
Introduction to be given prior to the exercise :
Kayotsarga may be practised either standing or sitting or lying down. For
beginners, it is advisable to adopt lying down posture.
In standing posture, you have to stand straight with the spine and neck in the
straight line but without stiffness. Keep your feet parallel to each other
with a distance of about 10 cms between them. Let your arms hang down loosely
from the shoulder-joints, close to your body with the palms open facing
inwards and fingers straight and pointing down.
In sitting posture, you may select a posture of meditation in which you can
sit comfortably and steadily for a long period. The posture of meditation may
be full lotus-posture, half lotus-posture, simple cross-legged posture or
diamond posture (Vajrasan).
