Begin in table top, with your knees directly below your hips, and your hands slightly ahead of your shoulders. Slide your right knee forward to the back of your right wrist, and angle your right shin so your right foot sits to the front of your left knee on the floor. Slowly slide your left leg back, straightening the knee and placing the thigh on the floor.
The right knee should be a little bit wider than your hip. Take a peek over your left shoulder to make sure the leg is in alignment with the long left edge of your mat. Rotate your leg inward slightly so its midline presses against the floor.
Lengthen your spine, soften your shoulders and breathe.
