Warrior 1 will give a big stretch to your hip flexors:
- From Downward Facing Dog, step your left foot forward between your hands. Turn your right heel in, press into your feet, and lift your torso up. You want your left foot to be slightly to the right of the center of your mat (not directly in front of your right heel).
- Once your hips are square, lift your arms up, and press your palms together. Draw your shoulder blades down towards your hips and gaze up toward your hands.
- Stay here for five breaths. Then come back to Downward Facing Dog, step your right foot forward and do Warrior 1 on the other side, and come back to Downward Dog.
