Starting from a forward fold, bend your knees and place your hands on the ground, step your left foot back behind you and keep your right knee bent. You can keep your left leg bent or straighten it any amount. You can stay here with your hands on the ground, or see if you can find your balance and rest your hands on your knee. You can also lower your left knee to the ground if that's more comfortable.
Now try the other side!
What did you notice? Was one side easier than the other? How was your balance? Was your balance better on your left or right? The same?
From a forward fold, place both hands on the ground and step one foot back and then the other, staying on the balls of your feet. From here make sure your arms are straight, and that your shoulders are directly over your wrists and that your whole body is more or less in a straight line, or as straight a line as you can make it.

I really enjoyed the city and the sightseeing that came with it, don’t get me wrong on this, but in the middle of the day I had to get some air and some space for me and my thoughts. So I decided to take a step aside and roam the parks of Belfast. Especially in this season it seems to be super lovely with all the colors." • Laura Pratt - "Smile Each Day" • Alexander Shustov - "untitled image" • Jude Beck - "Young girl silhouette" • Terry Tan De Hao - "After so many years of living in the shadow of the late Punggol lone tree, it’s time to give its sister a chance to shine. Through my phoney edits in photoshop, I managed to add the sunset glow and removed the neighbouring trees and SAFRA mall. Photoshop does indeed blur the line between what’s real and fake. & that brings me to a quote that I can still remember back in those GP days - ‘The media is the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that’s power. Because they control the minds of the masses.’" • Patrick Selin - "Lens flare" • Prasoon Raj - "I went to fort Cochi beach to shoot visuals for our documentary and that time i saw a dog sleep it was a great frame. I tried to capture it but i didn’t get good frame so i tried to get low angle by laying down to get the life of the frame. After getting the low angle shot i felt it was more beautiful than other angles." • Aziz Acharki - "To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides."
