Perform instructions

1) Push your tailbone back and slightly bring your hands forward.

2) Reach your left arm through the gap between your right arm and thigh - this will cause a slight twist in your trunk. Lower yourself until your left arm is fully flat on the floor. You'll feel this in your upper back.
