Rest your head on a towel or slim pillow to cushion your head.\r\n3. Take the pressure off your hands until the force of your weight is going through your knees, shins and feet, as well as the crown of your head. Place your hands behind your back to keep them out of the exercise. This is the neutral position.\r\n4. Under full control, allow your head to pivot back until your nose gently makes contact with the floor.\r\n5.
