Viparita Virabhadrasana ~ This pose is typically done after a Warrior II pose and is also known as a dancing warrior. The name refers to a Hindu mythological warrior, known as Virabhadra (an incarnation of Shiva). This mythological figure was depicted as having a thousand arms. This pose strengthens the legs, groins, hips and torso and improves flexibility of these regions. Regular practice of this pose increases circulation through the body, relieves lower back pain and helps reduce fatigue. This pose is not appropriate for anyone with knee, hip, back or shoulder injury.
