3. As you inhale, raise your left arm and right leg to a comfortable height as Figure 8-2 illustrates.

4. Stay in Step 3 for 6 to 8 breaths and then repeat Steps 1 through 3 with opposite pairs (right arm and left leg).

This posture is a variation of cakravakasana (pronounced chuk-rah-vahk-ah-sah-nah).

Apparently, when these birds have paired up and then are separated, their heartache causes them to call to each other.

Figure 8-2:

Extend your arm and leg fully on the ground before you lift them up.
