I have spoken about yoga pose, Warrior II and the benefits of doing it in order to avoid, what is commonly known as runner’s knee. Well here we going to chat about Warrior III.
This yoga move brings the heat to your core and challenges your balance. Instead of concentrating so hard in this pose, try to find a comfortable, centered space. Keep your breath strong!
How you do it…
Stand with your feet together and lift on the left leg, putting your body weight onto the standing, right leg. Keep lifting your leg while you drop your head and the rest of your body, forming a horizontal like from head to toe, and your arms at your side.
Make sure you engage your core, this will also help with your balance. Find a single spot to focus on if you’re having a hard time keeping your balance. Be sure to keep your left thigh, hip and toes in a straight line, keeping your back as straight as possible.
Some people prefer not to lock the right knee, either way, ensure that you are centering your weight on the middle of your right foot. Try to hold this for five deep breaths, in through the nose and out of the mouth, before returning to a standing position.
Switch legs and repeat.
