Start by standing on your knees.

Okay, I can do that.

Then bring your arms overhead and lean wayyy back.

Alright, here I go.

Now you just grab your heels and put your face in your feet.

What!? You’re kidding me.

Welcome to Kapotasana.

. . . What a damn crazy posture. I still need to be yanked into it to touch my toes. But I can get my elbows to the floor–woo hoo! I don’t know if that means anything, but it feels good. Actually, all of kapo feels good. Until a few hours later or the next day, when my body realizes it has done something practically impossible and decides to hurt all over. Kapo hangover.
