Standing with your feet hip distance apart, toes turned slightly in, bring the palms together and place the thumbs at your heart. On a deep inhalation, bend the knees and then slowly straighten the legs as you press the palms away from you and overhead. Exhale to reach the arms out to the sides, fingers spread wide and then bend the knees as the palms join together and rest at your heart.
Gaze upward, open the arms wide, spread the chest, and shine your heart out to the world.
Encourages the flow of prana (life force), gently opens the chest, and connects us to the breath and subtle energies.
