From Downward Dog, exhale, then bend your left knee and step your left foot forward in between your hands near your left. Turn out your right foot at 45 degrees. (Your right heel should be directly behind your left foot.) Inhale and sweep your torso up, raising your arms overhead. Bend your left knee at 90 degrees. Hold for three deep breaths.
Perfect your form: Keep your shoulders and hips facing forward.
