Becoming Warrior 1

60 min - Tutorial


What kind of warrior are we becoming? Kira guides Megan through a thoughtful and tender sequence to prepare the body, heart, and mind for the external and internal demands of Warrior 1 (Virabhadrasana 1). We develop a detailed understanding of what is being asked of the hips, low back, shoulders, and breath with an interest in finding a more pleasing and effective relationship with the posture.

Lovely pace. I really enjoyed taking time to understand the Warrior 1 and the process of preparation. I felt an amazing difference in the hips with the second squat towards the end. Thank you!

Lovely instruction and pace. You are one of my favorite teachers!
Interesting to observe the relationship between slightly pronated shoulders and lack of movement in the upper back which necessitates back bend moving into lower back and the beginning of the undoing of this pattern without ever specifically addressing it.
Dearest Ardhachandra, thank you so much for your keen observation! xok
Openness in my hips is rarely accessible to me, but thank you for helping me on that journey- I definitely found openness during some of these preparatory poses. I joyfully look forward to finding even more openness in them as I continue my practice. :)
Dearest Catie, glad to be here together and happy about your hips! xok
I appreciated learning more about grounding myself before going into a pose. Great job.
Also, it is good to see and feel how every little thing contributes to the overall development of a pose.
