Virabhadrasana II

aka. Warrior 2

Virabhadrasana II, named after a famous warrior, develops your quads, shoulders, and core, as well as your stamina and inner strength.

The standing posture opens your hips and strengthens and stretches your legs and ankles.

How to do the pose?

1. Starting from Five Pointed Star, move your right toes to the right wall and bend your right knee precisely over your right ankle.

2. Turn the hips and shoulders forwards and extend out via the finger tips towards the side walls. Look at your right middle finger.

3. Press onto your feet while keeping your legs sturdy. To stretch the spine, sink the hips towards the floor and reach the crown of the head up. Relax the shoulders back and down while thrusting the chest forwards.

4. Take 3-6 deep breaths and hold them.

5. To release, straighten the legs and turn the feet forwards, returning to the 5 pointed star position.
