Reverse or Dancing Warrior Pose – Viparita Virabhadrasana

Why practice it?
Anxiety, anger, depression, emotional ups and downs, ego and other inner turbulences are similar to an interior “war”. They may cause imbalances in the body as well as the mind. Imbalances create tensions which cause suffering. Regular practice of Warrior pose will make a person at ease and able to handle challenges well.

Inner weaknesses disappear and confidence increases. This pose strengthens and stretches the legs, groins, hips, and the sides of the torso and waist. It improves flexibility in the spine, inner thighs, knees and ankles and opens the chest region. It also gives a deep stretch to the torso and increases blood flow throughout the body, which reduces fatigue and helps calm the mind. Practicing this pose regularly will also build stamina. People suffering for lower back discomfort due to sittings too long can get relief.

Focus points:

Feet, ankles, knees, hips, abdomen, chest, throat, neck and arms. In this pose you use all the body parts and even twist your spine.
