A. Stand with legs wide, toes pointed out slightly, elbows bent, hands in front of chest as if holding a ball. Lower into a plié squat, keeping knees above ankles.

C. Rotate torso to face right thigh, place both hands on ground, straighten right leg, and lift left leg straight up until parallel to ground. Let neck relax and pull shoulders away from ears.

D. Hinge forward more, lifting left leg to make a straight line from head to toe; hold for 3 breaths. Return to start; switch sides and repeat. Do 5 to 10 reps on each side.
