This is the bow pose where one leg touches the ear. Sit on the floor with your legs stretched out in front of you. Take the big toe of the right foot in between your right thumb and first two fingers. Then hold the left big toe in between the left thumb and first two fingers of the left hand. Breathe out, bend the left elbow and lift the left foot by bending the knee. Inhale and then on an exhale keep the right leg straight on the ground and raise the left leg so it is by the ear. You are daring the left leg back like it’s with a bow and arrow. Then lower the leg back down and relax. Now repeat this on the other side.
