Strengthens legs, stretches legs and upper body.
Begin in Mountain Pose.
Step your feet wide apart, and stretch your arms out to either side, palms facing down.
Turn one foot, so your toes are pointing out to the side.
Bend your knee on your leg with your toes pointed away from your body.
Gently lower your arm to rest on your thigh, and bring your other hand up to your shoulder.
Extend your hand from your shoulder up over your head, and gaze at your fingertips.
Hold this pose for a couple of breaths, then lower your hands and step your feet together, returning to Mountain Pose.
Repeat on your opposite side.
Pretend your hand is a rocket ship, slowly flying through the sky, as it takes off from your shoulder and flies overhead.
