TYB: Rising - Beth - correctFrom a sitting position, stagger your feet. Lean forward with your chest up. Push off with your back foot to a standing position using your thigh muscles and the muscles in your bottom. Take one step forward with your back foot. Sit back down keeping your chest up, bending at the hips, not the spine, and leading with your bottom. Be sure to reach for the chair with your hands so you don't fall. Repeat this 10 times each in two sessions per day.
