Virabhadrasana 2 - Yoga Bender
Last week we looked at Warrior 1, and this week we're moving on to Warrior 2. This standing asana is the second of the three Warrior poses. The word "warrior" in Sanskrit refers to an ideal for yoga practitioners where the inner "spiritual warrior" battles self-ignorance (the cause of all suffering). It is a strong, assertive pose that requires both focus and inner strength.
