How To Perform Exercise

Steps :

1.) Start off by kneeling forward on one knee and stepping forward with the opposite leg, touching the floor with your fingertips and bringing your hips up.

2.) As you ease into this position, let the muscles relax and bring your hands to your front knee.

3.) Gaining your balance, reach your arms out forward, crossing your fingers and then lift your upper body and hands up towards the sky.

4.) While your upper body is shifting upward, move your hips closer towards the floor. Take your spine and shoulders and arch them back dropping your head and stretching your chin up.

5.) Hold this position for 5 to 10 seconds and then release back to the starting position.
