yoga mudra warrior

Yoga mudra warrior opens the hips, shoulders and chest while stretching and strengthening the legs. From warrior I with the right leg forward, exhale the arms behind your back and interlace the fingers together. Squeeze the shoulder blades together, inhale and look up, arching the spine and opening the chest. Keep the legs in a deep lunge as you exhale and hinge at the hips lowering the head and torso towards the floor. Rest the chest on top of the right thigh or bring the torso to the inside of the leg for a deeper stretch. Breathe and hold for 1-5 breaths. To release: keep the shoulders squeezed together as you inhale and press into the legs to lift the head and torso up. Repeat on other side. Lower the back knee and foot to the floor.
