Mountain Pose and Raised Arms Pose
Mountain Pose - Tadasana

Mountain Pose - Tadasana

© Ann Pizer
Walk the feet to the front of the mat until you are standing in a forward bend. Bend the knees and slowly roll up to stand in mountain pose - tadasana. From here, I suggest doing several half sun salutations. These are the first half of a sun salutation saquence, the part before you step back. If you have the time and the inclination, you can do full sun salutations here.

From mountain pose, take the arms out to the side and up to the ceiling. Press the palms together, coming into raised arms pose - urdhva hastasana. Slide your shoulders down, away from your ears.
