• From mountain pose: engage your deep belly, bend both knees, and step your left foot back  3 to 3 ½  feet, keeping the left heel high
  • Bend the right knee to about 90 degrees, keeping it above or behind the ankle, (you may need to wiggle the left foot back a bit)
  • Inhale: lengthen your spine.  Exhale: press the left thigh back as you raise your arms overhead
  • On your next inhale, lift your heart and your gaze upward about 45°
  • Breathe into the posture for 3-5 breaths
  • On an exhale, bring your hands to prayer position, gaze forward and gently bend both knees
  • Inhale and step the left foot forward, coming back into mountain pose
  • Repeat on other side
