7: From Extended Standing Straddle, lift your torso all the way up. Point your heels in, bend your knees, and squat down so your quads are parallel with the floor. Tuck your tailbone in, keeping your shoulders stacked over your hips. Raise your arms in the air, bending your elbows so they are at 90-degree angles, opening your palms away from you. Keeping weight back in your heels, hold Goddess pose for five breaths.
