Position of Readiness
Perform a modified Adho Muhka Svanasana at your yoga wall. In this pose place your palms and forearms on the floor with fingertips at the base of the wall and your forearms parallel to each other at shoulder width.

Step
Stiff your shoulder blades against your back torso and drag them toward tailbone.
Turn your upper arms outward keeping the shoulder blades broad.
Spreading your palms and pressing your inner wrists bend one knee and step the foot in, closer to the wall keeping the other leg active by extending through the heel.
Sweep your right leg through a wide arc toward the wall and kick your left foot off the floor, immediately pushing through the heel to straighten the leg.
Hop up and down like this several times, each time pushing off the floor a little higher.
Exhale deeply each time you hop.
Retain this pose for a few seconds then steadily it to one minute. Then release the pose.
While come down, be sure not to sink onto the shoulders. Keep your shoulder blades lifted and broad, and take one foot down at a time with an exhalation.
Be sure to alternate your kicking leg, one day right, next day left.
