Yoga Tips for Ladies: Warrior One Pose
The Warrior One Pose is used to strengthen and to stretch the lower half of your body. This movement is to be used after the body is warmed up.
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 does not over extend that lead foot.
2. Keeping your head, neck, and spine in alignment; square up your hips with your lead leg. Keep your core muscles engaged, your shoulders squared with your hips. Also keep your shoulders back and down away from your ears.
3. On the inhalation extend your arms up and over your head elongating your spine and navel. Hold this pose for about one minute. And then switch lead legs and follow the positioning as well as the posture for the other side.
