Partner Yoga Pose: Double Warrior 2

Doing yoga poses with a friend is not only fun and a great way to encourage each other to be healthy, but it helps you get a deeper stretch than you could ever get on your own. This partner yoga pose called Double Warrior 2 doesn't look like much in the picture, but give it a try it to see how amazing it feels.

Want to see how to get into it? Then

  • Partner #1 (green shirt) gets into Warrior 2 position with her right knee bent. Partner #2 (coral shirt) touches the outside of her right foot to the outside edge of Partner #1's left foot.
  • Then they hold hands or wrists as Partner #2 gets into Warrior 2 position, with her left knee bent.
  • By pressing into their partner's foot and holding hands, each person can pull away and lower their buns down to get an amazing stretch in their hips and shoulder.
  • Hold for five deep breaths and then switch roles.
