Devotional Warrior, aka Humble Warrior, was initially one of my least favorite poses. Although I had plenty of flexibility when I was a beginner, I didn’t have the strength or very good balance, so I would sometimes tip over in this pose. But, many years later, it’s one of my preferred asanas for the intense chest and hip openers as well as all of the leg strength it has helped me build. Join me tonight at 7pm @sanghayogashala for Vinyasa and Wednesday morning at 7:30am for Core Vinyasa and see what this magical pose can do for you.
