The next part of any Asana series is besides Warrior I, also Warrior II or Virabhadrasana II. So you'll step that foot forward, and step the back foot out. In Warrior I, you try to put the hip points forward. In Warrior II, you can let them open out. So you can turn that foot out even more than in Warrior I. Again, check where your knee is tracking. Is your knee pulling in? You see that misalignment and how they can pull on the ligaments. So tracking out. Try to find that nice centered position. Once you're in that centered position, the knees tracking the center also check where the angle is. Are you really far forward? Are you really far back? Try to find a nice middle ground. You can shoot energy out through that back foot, taking care not to pull weight in this way because again that'll pull on those sensitive knees. So try to pull weight down through the back of your foot. Finding that center position, so you don't want to lean your body too far forward, you don't want to lean your body too far back. You want to be in the nice, in the middle. Teacher once told me, with your arms out, you have one arm forward, one arm back, you're reaching towards the future, reaching into the past but you're right in the middle, in the present. So find a nice centered position. Once you get that centered position, if your shoulders are rising up, the trick is to open your palms up towards the ceiling, let your shoulder blades melt down, leave your shoulders there and turn your hands towards. Take a look over your front arm and your back arm, just to see where your hands line up, should be a nice even line. And then the fullest expression, is finding the way to stay centered and look over your fingers. And that?s Virabhadrasana II or Warrior II.
