Here I am several years ago demonstrating these yoga poses.  But the thing is, one can do a pose, but are you actually being active in the pose?  Pressing your foot into your inner thigh, pressing the feet apart in a wide stance, while shoulders being aligned, and dynamically extending arms opposite directions, while pushing feet opposite directions?
