I can’t quite get this one right yet.  My leg doesn’t stretch all the way out for me to reach so for this one it will get better as my flexibility gets better.  This is a great pose for balancing!  Your body is held up by one strong leg – held straight; that part is a challenge for most people.  Because I have taken self-defense and boxing, it is not my go-to stance.  We are taught to protect our knees so to never lock up, always be on guard to defend that that means not locking your knee.  But in this bikram pose, Lock it!
