The Warrior II pose actively stengthens and empowers the entire body – learn how to do this pose correctly in day 11 of our 30 day yoga challenge with Sarah Malcolm.
Welcome to day 11 of Healthista’s 30 Day Yoga Challenge, with leading London yoga teacher, Sarah Malcolm (@sarahmalcs), where you learn in detail a different pose or aspect of yoga every day. If you’re just joining us, click here to go to day one and see below for links to the other days in the series.
Warrior II, or Virabhadrasana II, is the second in a series of poses meant to strengthen and empower the body.
This pose differs from Warrior I, because the hips are opened and the arms are stretched to the sides.
The pose is excellent for increasing stamina and actively stretching the entire body.
Check back in tomorrow for the next move in our yoga challenge video series.
Our 30 day yoga challenge
Each day you will be learning a new aspect to the practice, so in a month you will have learned the basic yoga poses in depth and participate in classes or do a proper sequence yourself.
Shockingly to most people, yoga is a meditation that anyone can do. You don’t need a specific body type to master the practice, you just need the right skills – and you don’t need to be bendy! Our 30 day challenge will give you the skills to become a true yogi.
