Ayurveda Vata Pacifying Yoga: Warrior II | Banyan Botanicals

Warrior II (Virabhadrasana II)

A Vata Pacifying Yoga Pose

Warrior II

On an exhalation from Warrior I open the upper body to the left and lengthen the arms from the shoulders out to the sides. Palms face down. Feel the line of energy running from the tips of the fingers on the left hand to the tips of the fingers on the right hand. Coordinate bending and straightening the right leg with the breath.

Vata Focus:

Opening the pelvis and finding fluidity and movement in the pose. Grounding through the lower body and pressing through the big toes.


Builds strength and courage. Encourages opening in the hips.
