From Tadasana keeping your spine extended fold forward hinging from your hips. The weight should be evenly distributed on your feet, so you may need to lean forward slightly. Lift your sit bones away from your heels. Knees may be bent if you have any issues with your lower back or if your hamstrings are especially tight, but don’t forget to lift your sit bones even with the knees bent. Place your hands on your shins or the floor. Lift your shoulders up your back away from your ears.
