Yoga Tips - Virabhadrasana 2 done differently
Feeling a little jammed in your hips?
At Being Yoga we apply a modern understanding of anatomy. Our main aim with alignment is sustainability, and the ability to move with ease for as long as possible.
For both structural and physiological reasons, allowing your back hip to come into more of a position of naturalness in your Virabhadrasana 2 (Warrior 2 Pose), can bring a lot of ease.
Instead of opening the hips out to the long edge in this position, let that back hip face a little more towards the top corner of the mat, then rotate the upper ribs towards the long edge of the mat. Then breathe a sigh of relief.
In the video below, I explain in more detail why we do Virabhadrasana 2 differently.
We hope you found this Yoga Tip Blog post and video helpful.
