  • Turn your left toes out to the side and keep your right toes pointed forward. Lean-to the left as if reaching your left fingertips toward the left wall.  
  • From there, bend at the hip, allowing your left hand to fall naturally, resting on your thigh, shin, ankle, or the floor and extending your right arm straight up toward the ceiling.

Tips 

  • If it isn’t possible to comfortably touch the floor with the bottom hand or fingertips, support the palm on a block. 
  • While bending forward do it slowly and gently so as not to lose balance. 
  • Keep your arms long and open your chest toward the wall in front of you. Maintain length through both sides of the waist.  

Warnings 

  • Avoid if you have any recent or chronic injury to the hips, back, or shoulders. 
  • Always work within your own range of limits and abilities. If you have any medical concerns, consult with your doctor before practicing.
