    The picture doesn’t match the instructions! The instructions match opposite hand to foot; in the picture, the left hand holds the left foot. Which is it?

      Hi Diane,

      Thank you for pointing out my carelessness, the earlier uncorrected instructions was for a variation of the pose. I have made the necessary corrections. Thanks again.

      Love & Light.
