Move your weight on to your left leg as you step back one pace to the rear with your right foot, placing your body weight on to it as it touches the floor, and bending your right knee. Meanwhile keep your left foot flat on the floor. Swing your arms downward, back and upwards to the right side of your body until they reach a position to the rear and above the level of your right shoulder. Your right palm should face upwards and your left palm downwards.
