Baddha Virabhadrasana - The Humble Warrior
Baddha = bound.
Vira = warrior.
Bhadra = friend.
Asana = steady pose or posture.
The Humble Warrior is also known as the devotional warrior.
This posture represents surrendering and accepting the present moment in time.
This yoga posture opens the shoulders and chest, lengthens the inner thigh of the straight leg whilst strengthening the hamstrings and buttocks of the bent leg.
Warrior 2 is the perfect transition for this pose.
How to Perform Baddha Virabhadrasana
Start this posture from Warrior 2. Lower your arms and interlink your fingers behind your lower back, roll your shoulders back to open your chest and look up.
Fold your upper body forwards, so that your front shoulder is on the inside of the bent knee.
Hold this position as you release your chin onto your chest and lift your hands away from your body.
Breathe slowly for ten or more complete breaths and then repeat on the other side.
