Shift your weight onto your right foot. Imagine it has roots growing into the ground.

Slowly bend your left knee and then gently place the sole of your left foot against your right leg - you can use you hand to guide the foot. It can be anyone on your leg as long as its comfortable, just not on the knee (can cause injury)

On an out-breath, raise your palms in a prayer position above your head. Keep your chest and shoulders wide open with your legs strong grounded.

Lower your arms back down in a prayer position to your chest and lower your left foot back to a standing position

Observe how your body felt, repeat on the other side of your body.


  • If you feel wobbily, open your arms wide to help maintain balance
  • To keep focus, open your eyes and stare at one fixed object in front of you
