Warrior 3

  • From Warrior 1 with your left knee forward, lower your torso and lift your right leg, bringing your body parallel with the ground.
  • Extend your hands out in front of you, pressing your palms together firmly. If it bothers your shoulders to press your hands together, separate your arms so they're shoulder-width apart. If extending your arms creates pain or pressure in your lower back, rest your hands on your hips.
  • Engage your abs, holding this position for five deep breaths. Then lower your right leg, returning to Warrior 1. Release your hands to the mat, and come into Downward Dog. Step your right leg forward, coming back into Warrior 1. Repeat Warrior 3 on the right side, stepping back to Warrior 1 once you've finished, then releasing to Downward Facing Dog.
