Use Figure 18-9 and the following steps to guide you through this posture.
1. Stand in the mountain posture (see Figure 18-2a earlier in the chapter), facing the back of your chair from about 3 to 3J/2 feet away.
2. As you exhale, step forward with your right leg, place your hands on the back of the chair, and bend your forward leg into approximately a right angle.
You can keep the back foot flat or pivot on the ball of the back foot. Don't be tempted to force the angle.
3. Stay in Step 2 for 4 to 6 breaths and then repeat with your left leg forward for 4 to 6 breaths.
