Separate your feet about 3.5-4 feet apart. The front right foot is at a 90 degree angle and the back left foot is turned in slightly (approximately 45 degrees.) Bend forward from the hips. Place your left hand on the outside of your right foot. Rotate your chest toward the sky. Keep the hips turned down to the ground. Extend your right arm up in the air with the palm turned away from the body. The palm of the raised hand is in line with the shoulder. Turn your gaze up to the raised hand.
At this point, you should be feeling a real twist as everything above the navel line is revolving towards the sky and everything below the navel line is facing the ground.
Repeat the pose on the opposite side.
