    Instruction

    1. Stand on your mat in Tadasana
    2. Step or hop the right foot toward the back of your mat placing the feet 3 1/2 – 4 feet apart (a little more than the length of one of your legs).
    3. Point the right toes toward the back of the mat and point the left toes toward the right side of the mat at 45-60 degrees with your heels inline.
    4. Rotate the hips to square them toward the back of the back (like Warrior I). Place your right hand on your right hip and reach up with the left hand.
    5. Keep extending through the left arm as you reach forward and then down placing the left hand on the mat next to the right foot.
    6. Twisting to the right lift your right arm toward the ceiling and follow it with your gaze.
    7. Press your weight back into the left heel. Press downward with the left hand as you reach up with the right hand separating the shoulders.
    8. Remain in this position for 5 breaths.
    9. Exhale your gaze down and inhale back up to standing with your arms in T.
    10. Rotate on your feet bringing the left foot to point and the front on your mat and repeat the posture on the other side.
