I do this pose two ways. FYI- don't let these poses fool you, it will have you in tears. But not me though *thug sniffles*. To begin start off with the downward dog.
Heel On Mat- Raise your left leg and have your toes pointing to the ground. Your right leg heel is to remain flat on mat. Remain in position for 15-30 seconds. Switch legs and repeat.
Tippy Toe- Raise your left leg and have your toes pointed to the sky. With your right leg lift your heel of mat. Remain in position 15-30 seconds. Switch legs and repeat.
Make sure you're inhaling and try to do 2-3 reps. I'm working to better my posture but this was my best. I prefer doing the tippy toe version. I feel the burn more when I do it. *thug sniffles*
