There is a method to entering, holding and exiting the poses. The first step in any pose is the Central position. During the practice of standing poses the body must be aligned with it’s own axis (Central Position) first and from there the poses are entered. The process is slow, careful and it works best when following straight lines. Once you are aligned and properly secured in the pose you hold it for the right amount of time based on your physical constitution. It can be fron 20 seconds to a minute or more. Make sure to breathe effectively during the pose. When coming out of the pose do it as slow and exact as you went in for best results.
