In this posture, the feet have to be kept above the head. To do this, traditionally lie on your back. Raise the feet off the ground at a 90 degree angle. Use your arms to propel the legs. At this point only our head, hands (from shoulder to elbow) and upper back are the body parts touching the ground. The toes should be towards the sky. However, doing this asana comfortably takes time and practice, so you can try using the support of a wall to rest the legs at a 90 degree angle. As a beginner, to do this posture better, you can keep 1-2 pillows under the lower back, so that with external support, you can raise the body further.
Do these yoga asanas and pranayama daily to increase your hemoglobin level. If you want to increase the red blood cells in your body, then there are many other factors that need to be considered while adding yoga to your routine.
