Stand with feet hip-distance apart, back straight and palms together as if praying. Shift your weight left and slowly lift your right foot, placing the sole on the inside of your left thigh, knee or ankle. Press your right knee back and hips forward and even. Focus on an object in front of you. Once you feel balanced, push your arms overhead like the limbs of a tree, keeping your shoulders down. Hold for four to six deep breaths, then switch legs and repeat the steps.
