Steps for Practice: We need to take the following steps after we have taken the right position:
1. Straighten the head and tilt it lightly backward.
2. Inhaling slowly, we raise our head and the chest upwards so that our navel is on the floor; we raise the position up from above the naval. In this position, we then fully stretch our legs and keep the legs tightly together.
3. Then we look up into the sky and hold our breath for six to eight seconds.
4. After six to eight seconds, we start exhaling and lowering our head towards the floor and let the head rest again on either cheek.
5. Now, we let the body relax and rest for six seconds.
6. After rest, we repeat the process of the asana again.

THE BHUANGA ASANA: THE SCIENTIFIC AND OTHER REASONS FOR CURE
We observe that in this asana, we stiffen our spine, shoulders, face, eyes, and almost all parts of the body from the upwards the solar plexus, the navel. The navel needs great care as the solar plexus, which the allopathic doctrines gives no significant recognition, gets better curing effects through the stiffening and the resting, which this asana offers. Thus, as it brings flexibility to the neck, shoulders, spine, back, abdomen and other regions, it heals and offers so many benefits.
