- Begin in Downward Facing Dog. Step both feet together so your big toes are touching.
- Shift weight into your hands and your left foot equally. Raise your right leg up to the ceiling. Try to keep your shoulders parallel with the ground, and gaze at your left thigh or up toward your belly to help you stay balanced. To feel the stretch in your left hamstring, try to keep pressing your left heel down toward the ground.
- Stay here for five breaths (about 30 seconds), then lower your right leg down and switch sides.
- Come back to Down Dog.
