How to do Warrior Pose III (Right)

Back to Exercises

Difficulty: Medium

Impact Level: Normal

Target Body Parts: abs, lower back, calves, hip flexor, glutes, hamstrings, quadriceps

Instructions

Start from a standing position. Step your left leg forward, lift your right leg behind you and reach your arms out in front of you. Draw your belly button to spine, press your left foot down into the floor, press your right foot into an imaginary wall behind you and reach your arms far forward without hunching. Try to make a sharp letter ‘T” shape.

A common mistake in this pose is to keep the chest lifted and have the back leg low. Instead lift the back leg and drop the chest to make a horizontal line from hands through shoulders, hips and heels.
