Over your yoga mat you need to put two blankets, one over the other. The one on top should be folded in a way as illustrated in the video. You need to sit on your knees and palms. Your knees should be a little ahead of the folded blanket, so as to rest your ankles on the folded part. You need to put 1 rolled mat in between your legs, and another (preferably rolled widely - as in the video) in between your ankles. Sit back up straight and try doing a namaskar at your back. You can take the help of your instructor and stretch your arms wide at the back.
Then, stretch your arms upwards towards the ceiling, with hands folded against each other. Feel the stretch in your back as you stretch your arms upwards. You need to sit in the same position while doing all the stretching exercises. Do alternate hand stretching at your back.
