Vrksasana clarifies just how challenging it can be to stand on one leg.
What's really being commemorated in this pose's name, and held up as an ideal for all practitioners, is the "spiritual warrior."
Customarily entered from Virabhadrasana I. Here we'll move into the pose from a high lunge position.
The pose as described here is technically known as Prasarita Padottanasana I.
Purvottanasana counteracts the effects of Chaturanga by stretching the pectoralis major, pectoralis minor, and anterior deltoids.
Named for a fierce warrior, an incarnation of Shiva, this version of Warrior Pose increases stamina.
A good preparation for most of the seated forward bends, twists, and the wide-leg standing poses.
