Warrior I

Virabhadrasana, or Warrior Pose, with its many variations, is a pose you are almost guaranteed to do at least once in a given yoga class. It tones the hips, thighs, calves, and ankles, and opens the chest while stretching the shoulders. In the following video I do the pose three times on each side, each time with a slightly different anatomical focus. Try to follow along and notice the different sensations in the body with each slight variation.
