Crescent Moon Pose (Reverse Warrior)
Stretch out the sides of your torso with this Warrior variation.
- From Downward Facing Dog step your right foot forward between your hands, coming into Warrior 1. Open your hips, arms, and chest, coming into Warrior 2.
- From here, gently arch back and lower your left hand down, resting it on the back of your left leg. Raise your right arm overhead, feeling the stretch through the right side of the body. Make sure you continue to lower your hips, and press your front knee forward so it's directly over your right ankle.
- Remain here for five complete breaths. Then lift your torso up, place your hands on the floor, and move through a vinyasa, coming back into Down Dog. Step your left foot forward and repeat this pose on the left side. Then come back to Downward Dog.
