Climb with the fabric separated, do a double foot lock. Take one foot out to have a single foot lock on a single fabric. Hold the free fabric on the inside of the thigh and in front of the shoulder and bend the free leg so the foot is against the knee of the leg that is locked in the fabric. With the other hand reach around behind the back, bring the free fabric around the back then over the lap in front.
First Pose: Upside Down Arabesque
Hold the tail of the fabric at your waist or hip. Shift the weight backwards; thread the free leg up, and around the pole of the fabric from the outside to the Inside with the arch of the foot held firmly against the pole of the fabric. Lean back, still holding the tail of the fabric. The cross of the fabric should be held at the hips or waist if the hips are square and facing the ceiling. When secure, let go with both hands,and as long as the fabric is not slipping at the waist; pose in a “no-hands” upside down arabesque position. Keep the foot pressed against the top fabric to hold the leg in position.
Second Pose: Upright Arabesque
After posing, reach up and rotate, or open the hips. Keep the arch of the upper foot pressed against the fabric, or “sickled” against the pole of the fabric, move into the upright arabesque pose. If not as flexible, then allow the upper leg to bend.
Third Pose: Criss-Cross Stag Splits Position
After doing both the upside down arabesque and the upright arabesque, allow the foot to fall away from the fabric, and the leg to bend to come into the Criss-Cross stag splits position with the addition of a stretch forward.
To Come Out: Hold both fabrics in front of face, lean back and swing leg up and out between the fabrics. The other alternative is to move into the Cross Leg inverted hang or Lotus Hang.
Fourth Pose: Cross Leg Inverted Hang or Lotus Hang
With the fabric still wrapped across the back and over the stomach, after the Criss-Cross Stag Splits. Lean back, take foot out, lower down, crossing the free leg over the locked one. Hold the ankle to make sure the fabric is resting on the inner calf before moving into the inverted position.
