From Virabhadrasana II, fold from your right hip and place your right hand on the floor forward and to the right of your right toes. Keep your left leg externally rotating as you lift your left thigh firmly into your hip socket (check your right toes, they have a tendency to turn in toward the left when you lift your leg). Stretch your arms away from each other like they were in Virabhadrasana II letting your torso rotate to the left. Lift through your left hand feeling light on your right fingertips and lift your chest away from your right thigh. To begin your gaze should be cast downward at a steady point of focus (drishti). To advance the pose you can slowly shift your gaze to look at your left hand.
