Reverse Warrior Pose looks simple enough, but it can prove to be challenging to balance if your Warrior 2 isn't set up properly. Once you stretch back into your Reverse Warrior, keep your chest open. It should never feel like you're crunching your side into this pose; it's all about that big opening in your ribs while you strengthen your thighs.
- From Warrior 2, gently arch back and rest your left hand 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 breaths. Lift your torso up, place your hands on the floor, and move back into Down Dog. Step your left foot forward, and do this pose on the left side. When you're finished, come back to Downward Facing Dog.
