How To Do Yoga Poses For Beginners : How To Do The Warrior One Yoga Pose


Hello, my name is Samantha Raphael on behalf
of Expert Village. In this clip I’ll be demonstrating Warrior One Pose. To begin, step your feet
about three feet apart on your mat. Turn your right foot out, align your right heel with
your left heel. turn your left foot in just a little bit. Take your right hand to your
right hip and give it a spin towards the front of your mat. Slowly, with a breath out, begin
to bend your right knee and you can wiggle that right foot forward a few inches so that
your right knee ends up right over your right ankle. Make sure that your left foot is grounded
on the inner and outer edges as well as the ball and heel. When you’re ready, with a breath
in, reach both arms all the way up towards the ceiling, you can place your hands in prayer
position and gaze up at your fingertips. Hold here for five breaths, with each inhalation
feel your chest lifting and each exhale sink a little bit more, going a little bit deeper,
grounding into the earth. After about five breaths, with your next inhale, straighten
out your right knee, take your hands to your heart, turn your right foot in, and step back
to center.
