For the modified thunderbolt pose, bend forward, using your hands to balance yourself on the floor.
Raise your hips, and curl your toes so you come onto the balls of your feet, then rest your hips back down on your heels.
Now place your hands on your thighs with your palms down. Breathe gently. Sit in this position for as long as is comfortable.
To release, gently bend forward again and uncurl your toes, kneeling down to sit back on your feet.
Relax your arms, and focus on your breathing.
