When you're done, repeat the whole sequence, stepping back with your right leg into Warrior 1 Pose.

On an inhalation, raise your arms forward to about 45 degrees, palms facing each other. On an exhalation, bend your knees and sit back as if reaching for a chair. Keep your thighs parallel to each other and your knees even with your toes. Do not extend your knees past your toes. Experiment to find the most comfortable knee bend. The pose should feel empowering, not challenging. Hold for 3 deep breaths.
