High Lunge. From Downward-Facing Dog, exhale and step forward with your left foot, placing it between your hands, knee bent and aligned over your left ankle. Keep your right leg as straight as possible with your right heel lifted off the floor. Inhale and bring your torso to an erect position, looking straight ahead. Lift your arms toward the ceiling, fingertips reaching up, then exhale. Hold the pose for 3 to 8 breaths.
