To learn the pose, practice near a wall.  Practice Urdhva Hastasana to learn the arm actions in the pose.  For the first variation, the palms turn out when you place the hands a few inches away from the wall.  Press the palms firmly as you externally rotate the upper arms and move the shoulderblades into the back.
