Yoga Poses - Warrior Pose III (Virabhadrasana III)

This is the third and last variation of the Warrior Pose. Virabhadrasana III improves your balance and stability and strengthens the ankles, legs, and shoulders. Learn how to do the Warrior Pose III in this section.

STEP 1: Start with the Mountain Pose.

STEP 2: Raise both arms overhead, perpendicular to the floor. Your palms should be facing each other.

STEP 3: Move your left foot backward. Slightly lean forward, keeping your back straight and your arms stretched overhead. Your left foot, back, and arms should form a diagonal line.

STEP 4: Lift your left foot and straighten your right leg simultaneously, keeping your arms parallel to the floor. At this point, your raised leg, upper body and arms should be parallel to the floor. Give length to the entire spine by stretching your arms and your legs. This results in stretching from two sides of the back: stretching from the legs and from the arms. Keep on breathing through the belly and be careful not to bend your lower back.

This is a powerful Standing Pose which helps increase stamina and improve strength in the legs and ankles. As with all other poses, make sure to perform it correctly to achieve optimum results. You can ask your Yoga instructor for assistance so he or she will be able to tell you how to do it the right way.

I love these simple animations of the poses, other places make it all seem so complicated. I''ve recommended this site many times to other people.
