pose of the week: reverse warrior

Viparita Virabhadrasana

How to do it:

1. From warrior 2, turn your front palm up while bringing it over your head, resting your back hand on your leg.
2. Keeping the front knee bent and directly over the ankle, reach the rear hand down as you open the chest to come into a backbend.
3. Slowly bring your gaze up.

Hold for 5-10 breaths then repeat on the other side

  • Stretches the side of the torso and arms
  • Opens the hips and strengthens the legs 
  • Builds lower body strength
