From Dandasana, bend your knees out to the sides, bring the soles of the feet together and place your feet close to your sit bones.
Hold onto the outer edge of your feet, release your legs out to the sides, press the soles of your feet together. Stretch your knees away and down towards the ground, hug your outer hips to the midline.
Inhale, press down into your sit bones to lengthen up through your spine. Use your thumbs to open the soles of your feet out like a book, lengthen your inner thighs out to your knee creases, gaze forward.
