Try this powerful standing pose to build stamina, focus and stability for going back to school. Warrior 2 stretches the hips, strengthens the legs and expands the shoulders so we can breathe more deeply.

It's fun to add in a positive affirmation while in warrior 2, like "I AM STRONG!"

Steps:

  1. Bring your legs out wide, facing the long edge of your mat for five-pointed star.
  2. Point your front toes to the front edge of your mat and bend your knee over your ankle.
  3. Keep your back leg straight.
  4. Inhale and raise arms to shoulder height
  5. Gaze over your front fingertips and breathe.
