On an exhale, place your right hand behind you on the floor. Turn toward your right bent leg and, if possible, hook your left elbow around the outside of your right thigh (otherwise just hug your right thigh with your left arm). Rotate your upper body toward the right. Press your right foot down while keeping your right shin vertical. Hold for six breaths, increasing the twist with every exhale. Repeat on the other side.
