2 - Hug right knee and keep it close to chest and breathe.

3 - Keep left leg straight and extended with foot flexed.

6 - Inhale and push your hands to lift your legs and hips off the ground. Latch the left ankle over the right one.

7 - Exhale and bring your shoulders forward to create a 90-degree angle in your elbows as your feet swing over the right side.

8 - Allow your inner thighs to squeeze your right arm so that your legs stay firm.

9 - Engage core and lock gaze at any point on floor to help with balance.

10 - Hold pose for about 30 to 60 seconds and slowly release.

11 - Rest for a few seconds as you keep your breathing constant.
