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.
