10.2 EXHALE: ROW BACKWARD, LEFT I

The right hand keeps the right tip in approximately the same position as the left hand slides up to the 'town’ position as the left tip simultaneously lowers close to the ground. It continues forwards as the waist begins to turn to the right, the right hand staying approximately the same height, mid chest. Both hands finish at the front of the body, left hand holding the wand at the 'town’ position approximately the level of the navel; both hands are about 15 inches from the body. Step to the west with the right foot, shoulder width. [Figure 83].

Finish with the shaft of the wand close or touching the upper chest, both elbows bent, eyes looking north at eye level. [Figure 84].
