- From Boat, release your feet to the mat and extend the legs out in front of you.
- Place your hands behind your hips about six to eight inches, with your fingers pointing toward your toes.
- As you inhale, press into your hands and feet firmly, lifting your hips into the air. Lift them as high as you can so your spine is in a long line. Slowly release your head back, looking behind you, and open through your throat.
- Stay here in Intense East pose for five deep breaths.
