warrior 2 // virabhadrasana 2
Warrior 2, or Virabhadrasana 2, is a pose of strength, grounding, and opening. A somewhat standard pose in your yoga practice, Warrior 2 is a pose of constant growth and strength. Coming from Down Dog, step forward with one foot, bending in your front knee, and spin your other foot parallel to the back of your mat. Windmill your arms to either side of you, reaching through all fingertips and from the crown of your head through your grounded feet. You will feel an incredible strength through your foundation, and extension and light through your upper body.
