Half Moon Pose
For this pose you will need to put your weight on one leg with the same side hand on the mat for balance. With your legs straight but with soft knees, place both hands on the mat in front of you. Lift your left leg straight out behind you and open up your body to the left as you lift your left arm straight up to the ceiling, following it with your eyes so that your head has turned.
Keep the fingertips of your right hand spread on the mat in order to help you to keep your balance. You will inhale as you go into this pose.
