Hold for a few breaths and then place both hands on the earth and step your left foot back into a Lunge. Drop your left leg to the earth, keep your hips squared, and then extend your arms to the sky. Hold for a few breaths.

Place both hands back on the earth and step your right foot back so that you’re in a Plank. Make sure that your hands are under your elbows, your core is engaged, and your heels are pushing back.

Do a Chaturanga by pressing back through your heels and drawing forward through your crown and chest. Then lower your arms in a ninety degree angle, so that you’re halfway to the floor. Hold for a few breaths.

Shift into High Cobra by spreading your fingers and pressing your palms into the floor. Rotate your shoulders back, push your upper body off the floor and straighten your arms while keeping your hips, legs and feet planted on the mat.

Transition into Downward Facing Dog, hold for a few breaths, and rest. Extend your left leg back and then bring it forward, placing it in between your hands and transitioning into a Lunge. Raise your arms to the sky and hold for a few breaths. Place your hands on the earth and step your left foot forward to meet your right and then transition into a Forward Fold.
