The practitioner of Hasta Uttanasana should stand with the feet crossed. The two hands should be held together in front of the abdomen by interchanging like scissors. While raising the hands in this position, slowly the neck should be tilted backwards. After this, by gently spreading the arms in the direction of the shoulders, the wrists should be brought again in the shape of scissors. Breath should be exhaled while raising hands and exhaling while exhaling. When the hands are upward, the breath should be kept inside.
