Pointers for Kuditta Mettadavu:
Try to go down instead of hopping up each time you snatch onto your heels.
Keep dropping your tailbone and pushing your thighs back.
When you bend to the side, try not to have any form of a forward bend.
By the time you progress to the Kuditta mettadavu, your leg strength, balance and stability must have increased enough to hold your araimandi while on the balls of your feet. . The Kuditta- Mettadavu has a small jump onto the balls of your feet, followed by the lowering of the heels to the ground with a tap.
If you are unable to hold your back upright, follow the Araimandi / Muzhumandi exercise series that will be introduced in the following weeks to build the necessary strength.
