Hold arms out straight at sides to balance, looking straight ahead.

3. Support yourself with your right arm straight down and push right knee out diagonally while sliding left leg powerfully out to side and reach left arm across overhead. Repeat on other side. After each set, come into child's pose (not shown). Hold for 30 to 60 seconds and repeat three times.
