You start in Dandasana, sitting on the floor with your legs together and out in front of you.
Next you fold your right leg and place your right ankle on your left leg near your left knee. Gradually you draw your right foot up your left leg. Your right heel presses into your left hip and your folded right knee rests on the floor
Hold your right foot with your left hand from below. Hold the little toe side of your right foot with your left hand and point your elbow straight back behind you.
Now take your right arm around your back and hold onto the big toe of your right foot with your right hand.
Once you have the foot in position and you are holding on to your right foot with your right hand you tip your hip forward, take your torso forward and you take your left hand forward and hold the little toe side of your left foot.
Eventually your torso will be laying on your left thigh and you will be gazing towards the toe of your left foot.
Hold this position for several breaths.
You have now completed the pose. In order to get here you will have overcome several areas of challenge in your body. This pose like many yoga poses works on several areas of the body at once.
