1. Standing upright with your arms above your head, interlock your fingers, keeping your index finger pointed straight up. Make sure your feet are firmly planted together and your shoulders and spine stay straight but relaxed.

2. Exhale your breath as you arch to the left, pressing your right hip to the side. Keep your legs and butt tight as you balance, reaching upward and outward through your extended arms.

3. Breathe deeply and hold for approximately four to eight counts.

4. Inhale and release the pose, coming back to center with your hands still over your head. Repeat on the other side.
