  • Exhale, step the right foot back. Take the right knee to the floor and untuck your right toes
  • Inhale, raise the arms overhead. Slightly externally rotate the upper arms and lift through the chest

  • Exhale, take your hands to the ground to frame your right foot. Tuck your left toes, lift your left knee
