To do Heron Pose, start with the legs out front and bend the right leg, bringing the top of the foot to the outside of the glutes. The next step is to bend the left leg placing the foot near the sit bones and then lift the leg up and straighten. Grab behind the hamstrings, calf, or reach for the foot.
