Standing up press the bottom of one foot to the inside of the other leg, or to the thigh. Make sure that the foot is not pressing against the kneecap. As you get your balance, find a focal point to keep your eyes on. Try to keep your knee on your lifted leg pointed out to the side. Once everything feels steady, point your arms up toward the sky.

Get on all fours. Arch your back up really tall, as if you were an angry cat. The kids will probably enjoy hissing to complete the picture. Gently let your back fall into a sway, then arch it back up again. Mewing and hissing are greatly encouraged - come on, it's too fun not to!
Lay down on your stomach. Place your hands directly by your chest. Push your upper body upward as far as you can. Now pretend you are a cobra and hiss!
