Let’s face it: Life can be tough and we all need a little support sometimes, whether from a friend, a therapist, our practice, or all three.
When I step onto the mat feeling like I’m on shaky terms with everything around me, I often turn to poses that help me reclaim a sense of personal power. And one pose I immediately think of is warrior III, or virabhadrasana III.
Out of all of the warrior poses, I find that warrior III can feel the most chaotic and uncentering, which makes working to attain stability in it all the more empowering.
