Hi ladies, who doesn’t want a bootylicious behind! When working out, we all underestimate our butt area and never really focus on that. A toned butt can do so much to boost your self confidence. While there are always squats to achieve that but if you are not into that and prefer yoga instead, then this warrior 2 pose of yoga is just for you.
If you want to know how to achieve this pose and benefit from it, then just keep on reading.
A little About Warrior 2 Pose
The Warrior 2 Pose is also called as Virabhadrasana 2 and is named after Virabhadra, a mythological character created by Lord Shiva. Virabhadrasana 2 is a beginner level Vinyasa Yoga pose that works best when practiced in the mornings on an empty stomach. You need to hold the warrior 2 pose for at least 30 seconds.
How to Do It:
1. Stand straight and spread your legs and your legs should be three to four feet apart.
2. Turn your right foot out 90 degrees, so your toes are pointing to the top of the mat.
3. Pivot your left foot slightly inwards. Your back toes should be at a 45-degree angle.
4. Raise your arms to the side to shoulder height, so they’re parallel to the floor. Your arms should be aligned directly over your legs. With your palms facing down, reach actively from fingertip to fingertip.
5. On an exhalation, bend your front knee. Align your knee directly over the ankle of your front foot. Your front shin should be perpendicular to the floor. Sink your hips low, eventually bringing your front thigh parallel to the floor.
6. Now, gently turn your head, and look to your right.
7. As you get comfortable in the pose, you need to push yourself further. Stretch your arms, and gently push your pelvis down.
8. Stay in the pose as determined as a warrior and with a smile on your face. Keep breathing.
9. Inhale and come out of the pose. Drop your arms as you exhale. Repeat the pose on your left leg by turning your left foot outwards by 90 degrees and your right foot inwards by about 15 degrees.
1. The pose should be performed under the supervision of a certified yoga instructor or after consulting your doctor, especially if you have had any spinal disorders in the past.
2. If you have knee problems or arthritis, use support at the knee to give you some comfort when you hold the pose.
3. People with high blood pressure should totally avoid this pose.
1. The Warrior pose strengthens and stretches your legs and ankles.
2. It helps to relieve flat feet, osteoporosis, infertility, carpal tunnel syndrome, and sciatica.
3. It increases your stamina, relieves backache, and adds grace and poise to your stance.
