When the asana is
performed it resembles a Saras (crane). The crane is known for its agility. This
asana helps to strengthen the arms and increases the mobility of the body.
Spread a folded blanket or a mattress. Place your hands about a feet apart. The
fingers should point in forward direction. The knees are raised and placed above
the elbows. The hips are now lifted. The weight of the body is balanced on the
hands. Next the head is raised and the pose is retained for a little while.
