This yoga asana is the foundational and first part of the Warrior pose, also known as Virabhadrasana I. This exercise stretches the chest, lungs, shoulders, neck and belly. It also strengthens the shoulders, arms and muscles of the back, according to yogajournal.com.

Here’s how to do the asana:

* Stand with your legs shoulder-width apart. Keep the right foot in front and the left foot behind.

* Turn the right foot outwards by 90 degrees. Make sure the heel of the right foot is perfectly aligned with the centre of the left foot.

* Now lift your arms sideways so that they reach the height of your shoulders. Keep your arms parallel to the ground and palms facing upwards.

* Exhale and bend your right knee such that your knee and ankle form a straight line. The knee should not go ahead of your ankle.

* As you move into the pose, stretch your arms further and join your palms above your head. Look at your palms and push your pelvis down. Hold the pose.
