Begin in Mountain pose with feet together and hands on your hips, in prayer position or extended overhead. Step right foot back about 4–5 feet apart. Turn your right foot in about 45 degrees; your left heel should align with the arch of your right foot. Slowly bend the left knee until the thigh is parallel to the floor; keep the knee either behind or directly over your ankle; be very strong and active in your right leg as you bend your front leg. Tuck your tailbone as you rotate your pelvis back. Inhale while bringing the left hand overhead and right hand gently lowers and touches thigh. Allow face to follow the left hand. Hold this position and breathe evenly and comfortably through the nose. To come out of this pose, inhale rear arm to extend overhead and push into the floor with your right foot as you unbend your left leg. Exhale arms down into Namaste and feet into mountain. Repeat on the other side.
