TRY practicing with the support of a wall. Start in Tadasana with your right side about half an arm’s length from the wall. Raise the right arm and place the right hand on the wall for support. Shift your weight into the right leg, and on an inhalation bend the left leg, bringing the foot to the inner thigh. Keep the right leg firm and both hips facing forward. Lengthen both sides of the waist equally. Take 5–10 deep breaths before practicing on the other side.
