But worry not, as you have one of the oldest practices, Yoga for your rescue! One of the best method in our modern living that helps to tone up the physique as well as intellectual harmony.

Lie down on your belly with hands dozing under your thighs while the forehead and chin are on the floor. Raise your left leg up to 10 inches. Hold your leg straight. Prevent bending your knees. After the left leg is done, try the same method with right leg too. When you are comfortable with one leg at a time, try this with both legs.
