Begin on all fours in Down Dog.
Spread the fingers and push the backs of the knuckles into the earth.
Bend the right knee and reach for the right ankle or as low down as you can with your left hand. If you can start to straighten the right leg and this will revolve your body to the right. Gaze is under right armpit.
Hold for 5-10 deep breaths, repeat on the other side.
