This week in all my classes I will be teaching this pose- also known as Warrior 1.

It’s a great pose for waking up the body- this especially happens around the pelvis.

We are trying to get the pelvis into an upright position- stopping it from dropping forwards.

If the pelvis becomes diagonal then our lower back starts to over-arch which can cause pain.  Instead this pose can help us strengthen our lower back and challenge us to control our posture.

So this week I’ll teach you how to do that, and more, in this pose- I hope you’ll enjoy it!
