Warrior 1 starts bringing heat to your whole body. Keep your core and legs engaged with your hips facing the front of your mat. Equally sharing the weight of your body between your front and back legs will make this pose feel much more comfortable.
- After Standing Forward Bend, step back to Downward Facing Dog. Step your right foot forward between your hands. Turn your left heel in, press into your feet, and lift your torso up.
- Lift your arms up, and press your palms together. Draw your shoulder blades down toward your hips, and gaze up at your hands.
- Stay here for five breaths. Then come back to Downward Facing Dog, step your left foot forward, and do Warrior 1 on the other side.
