Warrior II Pose (Virabhadrasana II)

Multiple yoga poses of men performing the Warrior II Pose

Warrior II Pose is a foundational posture used throughout practice in a variety of ways. Warrior II helps to prep the body for more advanced postures by warming up the legs, hips, arms, shoulders, and back. Warrior II Pose stretches the groin, hips, and shoulders, tones the legs and strengthens the feet. Yogis with flat feet and sciatica will find relief with Warrior II Pose. Warrior II is helpful to create stability and stamina in practice and in life.

To do Warrior II Pose, begin in Mountain Pose or Tadasana. Take one leg and reach it back into a runner’s lung. Cartwheel the arms and lift the torso while turning the back foot to a 90-degree angle. One arm will be reaching towards the back leg and one towards the front while the torso opens to the side. Reach the fingertips in both directions and bend into the front knee while keeping the heels in line.
