I need to learn to describe yoga movements in proper English. Is there any site where I can learn for instance see this picture. To make someone stand like this, can I say

Please put your hands and keep straight out towards your shoulder. Or stretch your arms out to the side.

And also other movements like stretching arms out to upward, forward etc

Instructions: Stand straight with your feet shoulder width apart, hands by your side. Raise your arms, palm down, to shoulder level and hold.

Thank you, could you describe the movements of below pictures what should I say if I make someone to stand like this.

For cartoon picture

Put your hands up.

Hold your hands up straight.

For real picture, stretch forth your hand straight forward.

Instructions: Stand straight with your arms by your side. Bring them up to shoulder level and clasp your hands in front. Your elbows should be slightly bent.

Stand straight, feet slightly apart with your arms by your side. Raise your arms, keeping them straight, with the palms forward to reach above your head.  The elbows should be close to your ears.

In the cartoon context:

"Hold up your hands!"

"Raise your hands above your head!"

Liton DasThank you, could you describe the movements of the figures in the pictures below. What should I say if I want to make someone to stand like this.

I edited the picture captions for you. Yoga movements are always smooth and slow, not jerky. Do not use exclamation points in the instructions.

Thank you so much, but I saw on that yoga site, sweep your hands out to the side and straight up.

And for the figure 2 what if I don't want clasp hands just hold them out with palm hand pointing downwards.

Liton DasThank you so much, but I saw on that yoga site, sweep your hands out to the side and straight up.

In these exercises, there is a starting position and ending position. There are alternative ways to get from the initial to the final position. I gave you the simplest movement. Why don't you watch some yoga videos?
