Yoga Tips for Ladies: Reverse Warrior

Reverse Warrior- This pose is easy to transition into from either warrior one or warrior two. Reverse warrior stretches out your lats and strengthens your lower body.

1. To position your body step your feet apart about the length of your arms (or your wingspan). Keep the heel of your back leg/foot slightly dropped back and the foot on your leading leg pointed forward. Exhaling lunge with your lead leg. Be sure that your knee doesn’t over extend that lead foot.

2. Inhaling raise the same arm as your lead leg and drop the back arm down your back thigh. Keep your shoulders drawn apart and down from your ears. Lifting your eyes and chin, look toward your lifted hand.

3. You should feel this stretch your oblique and lateral muscles. Your oblique and glute muscles should be engaged. Continue this position for a minute before switching to the opposite side.
