First off, if you want a tadasana edition of Everyday Yoga, feel free to let me know. I’ve sort of skipped over it in my head because I feel like it’s pretty similar to upward salute — and I’m really interested in that one.
It can look like this, with the thumbs interlocked (and that seems to be the only pic Wiki Commons wants to show me):
I often see and hear the instruction for the palms to touch, though for the life of me, my shoulders do not work that way. So for people with shoulders like mine, there’s the version with the arms shoulder width and parallel.

For this round of submissions, you can photograph yourself in whatever variation — standing, sitting, arms together, arms apart — you generally take and/or works best for you . If you don’t use this pose (for example, someone with neck or shoulder issues might not want to do this), you’re welcome to submit a photo of whatever pose you’d use instead.
If you’re emailing your photo, the address is firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re uploading it on your own and sending me the link, you can either use the address above or leave a comment to this post.
Please submit photos by July 15, 2012. Thanks!
