Inhale and place your hands on your hips. Keeping your torso parallel to the floor, lengthen your spine from your hips through the crown of your head. Keeping your right knee bent, inhale and lift your torso. Press down from the hips through the feet. Inhale and lift your arms overhead. Firm your shoulder blades on your back and engage your shoulders as you reach long through your arms. Keeping your tailbone heavy, firm your belly, and press from your left hip through your left heel.
Hold the pose for several breaths. When you are ready to exit the pose, exhale and draw your hands to frame your right foot onto the mat. Step your right foot back to meet your left foot, press through plank back to Down Dog.
