6. Now here we use shoulder pulls. Tap your left leg. And slightly pull the right hand inwards from the shoulder. See to it that elbows don’t bend. Say Dhit. The arrow above the shoulders shows how to pull.


7. Again tap your left leg. Now release the shoulder. Say Tai. The arrow shows how to relax the shoulders.
