Stand keeping your legs 3-4 feet apart. Spread out your hands parallel to the floor towards each leg. Now, point the right foot outwards in 90-degrees and turn your torso towards the right side, keeping your back erect and hands parallel to the ground as far as possible. Bend the right knee and try to gently push your pelvis downwards. Hold the posture and then try it on the left side.
