  • From Noose pose, release the hands and bring the torso forward. Separate the feet coming into a Wide Squat. Place your palms firmly on the ground in front of you. Be sure to spread your fingers as wide as you can, and press into your fingertips to release any pressure in your wrists.
  • Straighten the legs slightly and place your knees as high up onto your triceps as possible, toward your armpits.
  • Shift your weight forward into your hands, and lean the weight of your knees into the backs of your arms. Lift one foot off the ground and then the other. If you can bring your toes together, you'll feel more compact, and it'll be easier to balance. Squeeze your knees together slightly, and pull your belly button in toward your spine to give you a sense of lightness.
  • Stay balanced for five breaths. If you fall, just get back into it!
