#10PerfectPoses DAY FIVE from @PaigeHeldYoga—Exalted Warrior: From Warrior II, flip your front arm up and reach it up and back, while your bottom arm reaches back to rest along your hamstrings. You’ll feel the stretch in your side as you reach up, but strive for length in both sides of the body as well. Keep your front knee bent directly over the ankle, and your back leg firm. Stay for 2 breaths, and come back up to Warrior II.
