It takes the tremendous strength of a warrior to "conquer" inner peace. The warrior pose, or virabhadrasana (pronounced vee-rab-hah-DRAH-sah-nah), fills the body with nobility and strength, calling upon the power and nourishment of the sun while firmly planting the feet upon the earth. Vira means "hero" and bhadra means "auspicious," so virabhadrasana means "heroic auspicious posture." Wow! Didn't you always want to be part yogi and part Conan?
We demonstrate three different versions of virabhadrasana here: warrior 1, warrior 2, and warrior 3.
