Step 4:
Inhale to prepare.

Exhale to press the right foot into the right hand as the right side of the chest opens up and the right foot raises up towards the ceiling. Keep the head, chest and left arm upright as the curve in the spine increases.

Once the leg becomes hidden from view, drop the left arm parallel with the floor and bend forward to increase the stretch in the legs.
