#EveryBodyYoga Day 13 - Warrior I

Day Thirteen of the
#EveryBodyYoga Challenge

Warrior I Pose

     Although this pose doesn't feel like a challenge to most, it has so many benefits. Warrior I Pose strengthens your shoulders, arms, thighs, ankles and the muscles of your back while it also helps to expand your chest, lungs and shoulders. It also helps to develop stamina and endurance in the thigh and core muscles - hello, future hot body! That's not all Warrior I helps with, it stimulates abdominal organs and digestion while also working to improve your balance, concentration, and core awareness. I don't know about you but help with my balance, concentration, and core awareness is reason enough alone to get into Warrior I daily. Will you give it a try today?

From Mountain Pose, step your left foot back and place it down at about a 45 degree angle. You hips should stay square to the front of the mat. Bend your right knee directly over your toes, keeping it aligned over your ankle at a 90 degree angle, and lift your arms up over your head. Keep your spine straight and ribs in.  Make any adjustments needed, so that you find comfort and strength in the pose while protecting your ankles and knees.
