Virabhadrasana II - Warrior II

Warrior II – Virabhadrasana II

Virabhadrasana II – Warrior II is a pose I use when I like to tease my students in a power yoga class. Keeping your arms parallel to the floor seems hard to do for people who don’t do this pose regularly. I like it for the gentle hip opener it gives me.

Getting into Virabhadrasana II – Warrior II

  • Start in Tadasana
  • Step out in a wide legged stand and open your arms. You want your feet to be under your wrists
  • Turn your right foot 90 degrees out and your left foot slightly in
  • Bend your right knee and bring it above your ankle. If you make sure your right thigh is parallel to the floor it becomes a real power pose
  • Look over your right hand forward
  • Roll your shoulders slightly back and relax them.
  • Keep your hips open, so you have a smooth hip opener
  • Stay in the pose for 20 seconds up until half a minute
  • Step back in Tadasana and change sides
