Virbhadrasana -2

Warrior Pose -2

Last week we saw the warrior pose-1 , if you have been practicing it for a while you while enjoy the benefits of it by now . Here we are with another slight variation of the same pose named as "Virbhardrasna -2" or "Warrior pose -2"

How to do it ?

1] "Samasthiti "would be the pose we start any standing exercise .
2] Taking a deep breath we slowly bring our right leg apart from our left leg at least 4 feet from each other and with extended arms .
3] Turn our right foot to the side and also a little bit of the left foot .So is our face looking towards the right side.
4] Slowly bend it right knee so that the thigh is parallel to the floor , while it forms a right angle .
Make sure the spine is still straight .
5] As you take this position your eyes are fixed on your rt fingers stretched arms and bend knees.
6] Stay in this position for at least 20 to 30 sec . Inhaling and exhaling out . In good spirit with regular practice you can go up to 2 to 3 min in this position .
7] To come back from this stage , bring your right foot back to the straight line and our face being in the front.
8] Repeat it again on the other side the same way .


1] Try not to bend the opposite knee joint .Say for example we are working on the right side , please keep the other knee joint straight if possible locked .
2] To maintain balance it is must to be concentrate on the tips of the fingers and keeping the spine straight and erect .
3] Be gentle in any forms you take in yoga , even though they are too simple to do .

Effects :

1] Builds the muscles of the thighs , calf muscle .
2] Tones this muscles too.
3] Prepares our body for all the advance exercise .

Chakra effect :

This asana works on the Muladhara Chakara or the Base Chakra.
