Lunging Warrior – or Virabhadrasana
IMAGE ONE: Inhale, step right foot back. Keep left foot in line with hands. Keep left knee bent at 90 degrees and align it with your foot so both point forward. Your knee shouldn’t move too far over foot. Keep right leg straight so you feel a powerful stretch.
IMAGE TWO: Inhale, press feet into floor and raise upper body up, reaching arms to the ceiling. Keep front thigh horizontal. Open chest and slightly arch back. Hold for several breaths, then reverse out of pose and switch sides.
