Place your right arm against the inside of the right leg . Cross your hand in front of the right ankle and grasp the outside of the right foot. Finally grasp the inside of the right foot with your left hand.
  • Lean back slightly, but keep the front torso long. Firm the shoulder blades against your back to help maintain the lift of the chest. Inhale and raise the leg diagonally to the floor, angled about 45 degrees, or with the foot as high as or slightly higher than your head.
  • Hold this position for 30 seconds to a minute. Then exhale and release the raised leg. Carefully unbend and straighten the left leg . Repeat with the legs reversed for the same length of time.
