Step 1: Sit tall in your chair.
Step 2: Extend your right arm toward the ceiling as you inhale. Imagine you're reaching for an apple on a high tree branch.
Step 3: Maintain the reach and slowly exhale with the intention of sending your hip and thigh down into your chair.
Step 4: Repeat 5 times on each side.
