Focus

Virabhadrasana III (warrior pose III) is for many people the more difficult of the three warrior poses. Not only is a degree of flexibility needed to find the basic shape of the pose, but also mental concentration is required to stay and hold. Added to this is the reality check of either balancing or not. This class looks at three approaches to getting into Virabhadrasana III. Initially you work with a simplified version of the pose where you can concentrate on weight transfer rather than lifting the body weight upwards. From there you progressively head towards the more classical approach of passing through the first warrior pose. Like the other warrior poses, Virabhdrasana III is empowering and uplifting.

This class also includes other key standing poses from the intermediate level. You are able to go deeper with warrior III whilst improving general strength, flexibility and general understanding.
