Warrior Pose II
The goal To figure out the correct hip position, without sinking too deeply into your hips.
To do Practice this pose with your front thigh resting on the seat of a yoga chair (you can add other props if you need more height).
The benefit Support from the chair will help press the outer edge of your back foot down into the mat, which creates a solid foundation for the strong muscular action of lifting up through the legs and engaging the glutes, says Clark. It also takes out a lot of activation from the front leg’s quadriceps so that the student can access other muscle groups like the glutes.
