Back Bending Warrior Poses

40 min - Practice


B.K.S. Iyengar said that "The mat is our laboratory", so in this class we are closely focusing in on a handful of poses from different perspectives. We explore variations of Virabhadrasana I (Warrior 1), Padangusthasana (Big Toe pose), and Virabhadrasana III (Warrior 3) to understand the actions of these poses and increase awareness of the uniqueness of each variation in our own bodies. You will feel centered and empowered.

Really benefiting from revisiting the Viras in this session, Stephanie, particularly from these very interesting different perspectives. It's amazing how lackadaisical about alignment I can become while happily floating (transcendently, of course  from pose to pose in my daily Vinyasa practice.  ❤️ 🙏

Interesting to get into the nitty gritty of the poses. I enjoy hearing you using the original names of the poses. Thank you for teaching on Yoga Anytime.
