Virabhadrasana B

You're a warrior. Remember that.


Christina Mills Virabharasana A

Anyone who knows the true origins of yoga knows that yoga is anything but soft. Virabhadrasana, also known as Warrior pose, is named after Virabhadra when he drew his swords to take the head off Daksha, the father of his beloved. It's a long story...


While yoga cultivates calm and hopefully non-violent energy, it also generates a confident inner strength that shines through this pose - the strength of the warrior.


In Virabhadrasana B, we seek to balance this strong and powerful energy with pose and relaxed control.

How to:

  • Step the right foot outward into a wide stance and place a 90 degree bend into the knee.

  • Check that the heels are on the same line and that the back heel is at a about a 45 degree angle to the front foot.

  • Extend the arms in both directions, pressing the arms down slightly, drawing the shoulders down from the ears.

  • Externally rotate both thighs, opening the hips.

  • The torso should be facing toward the side.

  • Look down the middle finger of the right hand.

  • Hold for 5 breaths.

  • Repeat on the left side.
