2 - Stand with arms at your sides. Then, gently raise them to ceiling.

If palms are apart, then they must face each other. Your arms must be straight at all times such that they are activated all throughout, through your fingertips. Move gaze upwards.
4 - Your shoulders must be away from ears, and shoulder blades must be pressed firmly on back.
5 - Your thighs should be engaged in such a way that they pull the kneecaps up. Straighten legs, but do not lock knees. Always remember that a micro-bend in knees is safer for your joints.
