After you have softened your knees, sit back into hips back while allowing knees to continue to bend forward. Try and maintain a length through torso and a straight back, with neutral curve. Drop down until thighs are just past parallel to floor. Squat up by pushing into the floor and extending knees and hips until legs are straight.
