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?
- 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.
- 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.
- Hips – It is a closed-hip Yoga postures, not an open-hip.
