Move Targets: Total body


Step 1: Refer to Warrior Pose 1.  Line up the front heel with the back arch and let the hips open to the side of the mat.  Bend the front knee to about 90 degrees and lunge forward to the front of the mat.  Still and strengthen the lower body by drawing the tailbone in and up toning the abdominal wall.

Step 2:Then float the arms up, one forward and one back, symbolically raising your sword.  Maintain a soft gaze at the front hand’s middle fingernail as you soften the pose with awareness and strength.  Hold for 5 or more breaths.
