    Ideally, your hands don’t move position when flowing through vinyasa. You cue them once in HIGH PLANK (shoulders in line with wrists) So you would cue as followed (pick and choose):

    roll over the toes
    knees & hips lift off the mat; legs are engaged
    straighten the arms –> Upward Facing Dog

    additional cues:

    keep lifting the chest to prevent pinching in the lower back.
    gaze is fwd
    shoulders away from ears
