2.  Open your arms to the sides then cross them over each other, left over right.

3.  Bend both elbows, lifting the forearms toward toward the sky with both palms facing out. If possible, draw the palms and let the right fingers catch the left palm.

4.   Soften the left knee to 20-degrees. Lift the right leg, bend the knee, and cross it over the left thigh. If possible, wrap the right foot around the left calf.

5.  Squeeze all joints and release into gravity, deepening the bend in the leg. Keep elbows at shoulder height and spread the scapula open.

Finish with your mantra: "I HEART Yoga because..."
