Green+Aquamarine: Asana of the Week #3

Tuesday, 5 August 2014

Asana of the Week #3

It is the third Asana of the Week! Each week, on Monday or Tuesday I will share a pose and explain how to get into the position correctly. Then, I challenge you to try the asana, and tag me on Twitter (@EleanorMayC) or Instagram (@EleanorMay_C) using the hashtag #AsanaoftheWeek Comment below if you have got involved, and have fun!
This week we are moving into the Warrior Poses, Virabhadrasana. Today is Warrior 1 Pose. Warrior 1 pose stretches the chest, shoulders and core. The shoulders, arms and calves are strengthened. Stand on the front edge of your yoga mat, then step your left back by around three feet. The left foot should turn outwards lightly to point toward the mat corner. Bend the right leg so that the thigh is parallel to the floor. Rest your hands on your hips to make sure that they are pointing straight forward. Now raise your hands above you, palms inward. Hold this position for five slow breaths through the nostrils. 

Tune in next week for Warrior 2 pose and Reverse Warrior! Click here to see last weeks Upwards Dog pose.
