After that, whole the body should be leaved as loose with closing the eyes and inhale slowly. The process of making the body as loose should be started from big toes (feet thumb) to head muscles through legs calf, back, chest and neck. But we should never sleep. It should be performed for 5 minutes. It provides much relax to the performer as well as strength and activeness.
