Warrior II Pose Instructions
1. Start in mountain pose, step to the side with your left foot and rotate it out, to a 90-degree angle.
2. Bend your left knee, keeping it in line with the ankle.
3. Rotate your head to the left, bring the arms up to shoulder height, and keep them parallel to the floor, with the palms facing down.
4. Hold the pose for 30 seconds to 1 minute, reverse the feet and repeat.
Firm your thighs, keep the heels aligned, and bend your left knee until your thigh is as close to parallel to the floor as possible. Raise your arms, reach them out to the sides and widen the shoulder blades. Maintain your torso straight and long, with the shoulders over your pelvis and the tailbone pressed toward the pubis, and look out and over your left fingers.
