Separate the hands with the left one stretching up left and the right one lifting from the front of the belly back up along an arched line until at the horizontal position. Turn the waist to the right, let the eyes look at the right hand and inhale at the same time. Then, bend the right elbow and push the right hand forward by passing the ear with the palm facing the front. Exhale at the same time. Then, retract left hand to the front of the chest horizontally and let it come just across the hypothenar of the right hand. (Fig. 62-1)
