How To Do It: Begin in ardha uttanasana half-way lift. Keeping knees soft, transfer weight to the right leg and lift left leg up behind you until the foot is in-line with the hip. Draw the left foot up through the left heel, internally rotating the left thigh so the toes point down. Square hips so they're both at an equal height.
