Straddle around the bench

This is a Step pattern from (pattern 820)

Bench is in "standard" position, starting behind the bench (the back)
Reference directions are from this position (right, left, back, front) You are now on the front side of the bench. Start the combination again going to that same "left" corner first. When you straddle again you're facing the same side of the room as the last time you straddled.

I teach the knees and straddles first, then add in the turnsteps around the bench. I also do plenty of verbal cuing when my students aren't facing me and use reference points so people know which direction they should be facing at any given time.
