• Stand in the center of your mat, facing the long edge.
  • Step your feet about 3 ½ feet apart, turning your right toes to the short edge of the mat and your left toes in about 30°
  • Inhale: raise the arms to shoulder height.  Exhale: shift the left hip back toward the left foot and reach the right arm long toward the front of your mat
  • Inhale: lengthen the side body.  Exhale: hinge at the right hip, reaching your right hand toward your shin or the floor and your left hand toward the sky
  • Breathe here for 3-5 breaths, gazing at the floor or toward the wall.  If you’re very warmed up and it’s available to you, take your gaze toward the sky
  • Inhale: press both feet firmly into the mat to rise back upright
  • Exhale: turn both toes to the long edge, gently bend knees and step back to mountain pose.
  • Repeat on the other side
