STEP 1 - Starting in side plank on your right side. Stack the left foot on top of the right and press the inner edges of the feet together. As if you were standing in mountain pose, flex the ankles and hug the belly in to the spine.

STEP 2 - Begin to lift left leg. Bend your left knee and bring the ball of your foot to the floor behind the right foot. Lift your belly and chest to ceiling. Plug into the right foot and stay on the ball of your left foot or pressing fully into left foot.

STEP 3 - Reach and extend your left upper arm alongside your right ear. Find a spot for your eyes to focus on and continue reaching for it with your left arm. Keep using the strength of your core for stability. Curl back through your upper back to create a sweeping action of the shoulder blades into the back of the ribcage. Keep your breath fluid and continuous.
