From Virabhadrasana I, straighten your right leg. Draw your right hip deeper into your body and rotate your left hip forward. Release your arms behind your back placing your palms together in reverse prayer position (if this is not happening for you, you can hold on to your elbows behind your back). Relax your shoulders down your back, moving your shoulder blades toward each other and lifting your heart. Hinge forward from your hips, especially your right one. Stop half way down lifting your sit bones and your heart. To support your balance press into the soles of your feet. Both legs should be straight and strong.

From Virabhadrasana I, straighten your right leg. Draw your right hip deeper into your body and rotate your left hip forward. Hinge forward from your hips, especially your right one, reaching your arms out to the side like an airplane. Stop half way down lifting your sit bones and your heart. Rotate your torso to the right placing your left hand on your right shin, ankle or the floor. Your right arms should reach upward. Release your shoulders down your back. Keep your sacrum square with the floor (often times the left hip will drop lower than the right hip). To support your balance press into the soles of your feet. Both legs should be straight and strong. Find a comfortable position for your neck, either looking to the floor or looking up at your right hand.
