Another challenging aspect of Warrior, there's three parts, in the previous clips I explained Warrior I, Warrior II and Reverse Warrior. This next is Virabhadrasana III or Warrior III. It's a little more advance but also a challenge for the beginning students. So be patient with yourself and take time to get there. So what you'll do, is you'll step slightly forward, for beginning students, just let your legs touch out behind you, and lift your arms out. And then as you feel more comfortable, you want to make sure your chin is slightly tuck, and you're grounded evenly down through that supporting leg. Looking out at the floor in front of you, if you look too far out, it's easier to lose your balance. So for more advance students, you can slowly bring yourself up, keeping that slight upward bend, to the upper back, reaching energy out through those fingertips as well as through the toe. Pushing, really shooting energy out, and hugging energy inward, will help you balance. Finding a way to keep the weight even and not rocking side to side in the foot also helps. And then slowly bring it up. And then you'll do the other side. So then you'll bring it out, and shoot the energy out. Try to keep the hips at level. And then slowly bring it back up. You want to hold this for about six to eight breaths. And that's Virabhadrasana III or Warrior III.
