Start standing with your toes together and your heels apart, with the block a step in front of you. Step your right leg forward by the block, keeping both legs straight. Slightly turn out your left foot to a 45-degree angle, draw your hips back and keep your legs straight.
Extend your right arm forward and lower it comfortably, bringing your right hand to the block by your leg. Your upper body should be in line with your front leg, creating a straight line from your hip to your armpit. With your shoulders stacked, lift your left arm in alignment with the arm touching the block, and twirl your spine so you’re looking up into the sky. Hold this pose for five breaths.
