Warrior Pose I


Warrior pose 1 is called Virabhadrasana after ‘Virabhadra’ – a fearless warrior said to have defeated his enemies with a thousand arms.  Channel his strength and determination in this version by pushing your fingertips to the sky and feel the stretch all the way from your heels up through your sides, shoulders and arms.  Try to keep the hips and shoulders square to the front of the mat.  Hold for up to 10 slow breaths on each side.  Rest in Mountain pose with the arms relaxed by the sides afterwards.
