WARRIOR SERIES!

WARRIOR 1 – VIRABHADRASANA 1

Let’s shift our focus this February on some warrior poses. We’ll start with Warrior 1 or in Sanskrit, ‘Virabhadrasana 1’.  It should be the right way that Yoga is more subtle and induces non-violet charisma but why Warrior – it seems to be the reverse. One of the ancient Yoga text, the Bhagavid-Gita portrayed the dialog between two famous and feared warriors; Krishna and Arjuna, set on a battlefield on their fight for rights.

Translating it into Yoga, we are a strong warrior within our inner self  in our Yoga practice!

Are you doing it right?

  1. Knees – Make sure the thighs are parallel to your mat or in an ideal situation, thighs and shins are perpendicular at 90 degree. It’s not knee over ankle.
  2. The Back Leg – Did you engage the leg muscles or just let it loose? Remember to distribute the weight evenly to the foot at the back as well.
  3. Hips – It is a closed-hip Yoga postures, not an open-hip.
