Exalted Warrior ~ Viparita Virabhadrasana


From Warrior two, place your back palm to your back thigh as you flip your front palm up and reach it toward the ceiling. Maintain length in both sides of your waist. Keep the depth in your front knee- knee directly over ankle, femur parallel to floor.


Feel a spaciousness through the side body without compressing around your low back and hip.

Exalted Warrior is a Moderate , Standing , Backbend

This pose gets overdone a lot of the time.  Avoid all compression to the back hip, low back and waistline.  Modification is either keeping upper hand on hip, focusing on peeling the top shoulder back and down, or reaching the upper arm to the ceiling while keeping the shoulders stacked directly over the hips.
