The standing heel-to-buttock posture improves your overall balance and stability. This posture strengthens your legs, arms, and shoulders and stretches your thighs. As with the other one-legged balancing poses, this posture enhances focus and concentration. Here's how it works

1. Stand in the mountain posture (see Chapter 7).

2. As you inhale, raise your left arm forward and overhead.

3. To steady yourself, focus on a spot on the floor 10 to 12 feet in front of you.

4. As you exhale, bend your right knee and bring your right heel toward your right buttock, keeping your left leg straight.

Grasp your right ankle with the right hand as Figure 8-5 illustrates.

5. Stay in Step 4 for 6 to 8 breaths; repeat Steps 1 through 5 with your left foot.
