Yoga Pose

Warrior 1 /VIRABHADRASANA 1 (Static)

Warrior 1 /VIRABHADRASANA 1 (Static)

From Tadasana (Mountain Pose) place your hands on your hips and take a big step back with the right leg.

Turn the right foot at a 45 degree angle and let the back heel and outer edge of the foot sink down while the inner arch lifts up.  Bend the left (front) knee so that it aligns above the left big toe.  Hips continue to face FORWARD. Draw the arms up above the head, elbows straight and palms facing in but shoulders width apart.  Relax the shoulders.  Pull Mulband (rectum, sex organ and navel all draw up and in toward the solar plexus).

*Hold this position for 5-10 breaths. 
*Bring the arms down and step forward with the right foot to meet the left back in Tadasana. 
*Repeat with the other side.
