Body, arched back, so you present your chest to the sky, allowing you to swing up and out.
Toss height matters less, because what counts is your strikezone, which is lower than for a flat or slice serve.
Stay sideways, swing up and out to your right, if you're right handed.
Aim to clear the net by 3', the slow speed and spin forcing the ball IN to the service court.
Good advice.

I will add one - don't hit the ball at the apex of the toss. Let it start to drop down a bit.
