On an exhalation from warrior I open the upper body to the left and lengthen the arms from the shoulders out to the sides. Palms face down. Feel the line of energy running from the tips of the fingers on the left hand to the tips of the fingers on the right hand. Coordinate bending and straightening the right leg with the breath.
Lifting and opening the chest. Gaze upward. Hold the pose longer than you want to.
Builds strength and courage, and opens in the hips.
