This is almost like the warrior II pose, and has the same method of doing it. However, a yogi can modify it a bit if he/she wants to make it more challenging. From the warrior II pose, the yogi can gently lift the body to balance on the front leg and lift the back leg upwards and backwards. While doing this, he/she should bend forward, clasping both hands stretched out above head. Maintain balance, inhale, and exhale as your hold this position for 1-3 minutes. The benefit is toning of the tights and leg muscles.
