Yoga Poses for Energy : Yoga Warrior One Pose for Energy


Alright now we’re going to a little warrior
stuff. A little warrior action. This is warrior one. Warrior poses are amazing for opening
you up through the hips and for building confidence, poise, strength, and grace. They’re powerful,
beautiful poses. So warrior one, we’re just going to step into it. All I’m going to do
here is I’m placing my left foot in front and its pointing forward. My left foot, I
mean my right foot, I’m going to step it back checking this mid-line, right? I should be
forth position. Step it right back. That right heal is pointing out. The right toes are pointing
in at about a forty-five degree angle. I’m going to bend my front knee. When I look down
at my front knee, I should be able to see the inside edge of my big toe. If you can’t
do that then you need to adjust your pose. Use your adductors. If your knee is falling
out, you need to use these adductors to bring it in. The important thing about warrior one
is that the hips are square. They are not out. So you want to try, find your hip bones,
point both your headlights forward. Headlights forward. You?re not like this, you’re like
this. Inhaling, open the heart, and lift the arms. You should feel a nice opening through
your sods here, and if you’re feeling lots and lots of pressure on your front thigh,
it?s because you’re leaning to far forward. Tuck the pelvis. Square the hips. Drop the
weight straight down. Think of pressing the weight through your back little toe and let
the crown of the head rise. Inhaling here, you’re going to see if you can take five breaths,
and as you stand up. inhale. You’re going to switch your feet: right foot out, back
foot in. Dropping over, don’t ever let the knee come over the ankle. You want to keep
it stacked. Check your big toe, hips are square, inhaling, lifting the heart. Five to seven
breaths, inhaling as you’re all done. Stepping back to tadasana.
