How to Do Warrior II Pose (Virabhadrasana II)

It's phenomenal how a moment of peace can be so energizing. Warrior II is such an energizing yoga pose that fights off fatigue. It enhances your focus, strength and stability.

How to Get Into the Pose

From Mountain Pose, step your feet about 3-4 feet apart. Reach your arms actively out to the sides, lifting them parallel to the ground with your palms facing down. Move your front foot out 90 degrees, so that the back foot intersects it. Bend deeply into your front knee, keeping it even with your front ankle, with the back leg straight. Your torso stays straight and long. Gaze over the front hand. Hold for one minute, breathing deeply. Reverse the feet and repeat on the other side.
