Virabhadrasana II ~ The classic way to get into warrior II pose is to start in mountain pose (tadasana) and step one foot back, keeping front knee bent and bringing arms apart. By energetically sending both arms apart, keeping palms facing the floor, you are strengthening the legs and ankles as well as the arms. This pose relieves the pressure felt in second trimester of pregnancy and therapeutically it is used to help with carpal tunnel syndrome, osteoporosis and sciatica. To increase sensation in this pose, turn palms towards the ceiling while drawing shoulder blades down the back and then back to the floor a few times.
