Another aspect of warrior is reverse warrior. So, in a previous clip I told you how to get into warrior two. So, just to briefly go over that you find your nice even lunge. Check where your knees tracking. Is it pulling out or in? Keep a nice even line. Nice line from your knee to your ankle. Weight pulling back through that foot. Nice engagement in your leg. Try not to bend your knee and also try not to lock too much. Find a nice engaged quadriceps and hamstring muscles. Let energy shoot through both feet evenly. Arms come out into warrior two. Again, open those hands up towards the ceiling and let the shoulders drop down. Looking out towards that front hand, check also where your back hand is. See if it's not going too far this way or too far this way. Which, will contort that shoulder. So, find a nice line between both hands. Staying, the tendency will be to straighten the leg as you go back. So, you want to keep this knee bent. Bring the back hand down and on an inhale slowly scoop yourself up towards the back. You can open the heart towards the ceiling. Keep the chin slightly tucked. Or, you can keep it to the side. You'll feel a nice stretch through here. And, also you'll feel a nice engagement of those obliques. So, from warrior two go up. Really think of reaching up and back. And, rest your hand on the back leg. Try not to lean too much. Really try to use those abdominals to hold you up. And, then press evenly though the feet. And, then slowly come back up on an exhale and you can step forward into tadasana to finish out your reverse warrior.
