Stand straight with your right side to the back of a chair. Keep your right hand on the back of the chair, left hand on hip, abs drawn in, shoulders back and down, chin level. Turn your toes out and bring your left heel toward your right instep [A]. Inhale and lift your left leg out to the side and point your toes slightly [B] (see next slide for photo). Exhale, flex your left foot and touch your left heel to your right heel and pulse tiny "beats" for 1 minute, squeezing buttocks and inner thighs and breathing normally. Switch sides and repeat. Strengthens hips and thighs.
