Balance on one leg with hand reach
Use a stable surface about waist high, such as a table, top of a chair, or the wall.
 
Stand about one stride back from the table.
Shift your weight to your right foot and lift your left foot off the floor, bending your left leg slightly.
Inhale and lower yourself slightly by bending your right (supporting) leg.
Exhale as you slowly reach forward with your right hand, with your left leg rising behind you like a counterbalance. Place your right fingertips on the stable surface.
Keep your head and back lifted.
Inhale and return to the starting position, keeping your left leg bent. (Try not to touch your left foot to the floor betweeen repetitions.)
   
Repeat 8 to 10 times; change legs.
