Let your left knee drop to the floor, opening your left hip. Keep the hips even.

Exhale: Drop your tailbone and lift your trunk upright, placing your hands on your right knee. Open your chest and let your gaze be forward.

Extend the pose further by raising your arms overhead in parallel position. Keep your shoulders down and reach from your center.

Support this pose by keeping your abdominal muscles engaged and dropping your tailbone toward the floor.
