  1. Step into a lunge with your right foot in front, knee bent (as close to a 90-degree angle as possible) directly over your right ankle, hips square to the front. Position yourself about arm's length away from a wall just in case you need extra support for balance.
  2. Bend your back knee and curl your tailbone under. Keeping your pelvis tucked, straighten the back leg.
  3. Raise your left arm overhead, and bend to the right, using your right hand against your hip (or wall) for support as needed. Take 5 to 10 deep breaths.
  4. Repeat on the opposite side.
