Safety:

  • Place your heel directly under your knee, knee over ankle.

Actions:

  1. From Downward Facing Dog, step the right foot forward inside of the right hand. Front foot points straight forward.
  2. Align your front knee above the ankle. If the right hip is above the knee, take a longer stance by stepping the back foot back until the front thigh is parallel to the floor.
  3. Come to your fingertips. Lift your back thigh so your heel is vertical to the floor.
  4. Draw your right hip joint away from your right ear. Isometrically scissoor both thighs towards one another. Keep the back leg strong.
  5. Extend your sternum towards the top of the mat.
  6. Stay and breathe.
  7. To come out. Look to the floor. Place your hands flat. Step back to Downdog.

Repeat on the second side.

Refinement:

  • Lift and spread your toes, press down through both leg strongly and feel the hips square symmetrically. Find more space in this scissoring action.
