In this pose, you begin by sitting on the floor with your legs straight out in front of you and your arms behind your back. Put your hands on the floor behind you with your fingers facing away from you. Take your left foot and place it flat on the ground on the outside of your right knee. Inhale and bring your right arm up. Exhale and place your elbow on the outside of your left leg. Turn your chest, head and eyes to the left and hold the pose for about a minute. Breathe. Slowly bring your head first and then your chest back to center. Repeat on the other side.
