Warrior II (Virabhadrasana II)
For Warrior II begin in Downward-Facing Dog (Day 3), inhale your right leg up towards the sky, then exhale and step it lightly between your hands, with your knee bent and your foot in line with your knee. Turn your right foot slightly to the right and rotate your back foot out 90 degrees. On your next inhale sweep your arms up, ending with your arms parallel to the earth on either side of your body. Keep the sides of your torso firm and your spine long. Turn your head to gaze lightly out over your right fingers. Relax your shoulders, and feel your arms hanging in space. Hold for as long as feels comfortable. Repeat on the other side.
Practice with mindfulness and always remember to breathe.
The most fundamental part of any yoga pose/sequence is your breath.
Try inhaling for 3 seconds and exhaling for 5,
always making the exhales longer than your inhales.
Breathing is the most IMPORTANT part of yoga, the poses(asanas)/sequences are just a bonus.
:: Your breath is what keeps you alive. ::
