  • Warrior One Pose: After taking a deep breath take one foot to the back of your mat. The foot you have taken back should be perfectly straight. You will now be in a lunge position. Keep your arms and hands over your head like before.
  • Warrior Two Pose: After you have balanced your body in the previous position it is time to move on to the next one. Stretch out both your arms towards each foot. Balance your body by holding this pose for at least half a minute.
  • High lunge: After taking a deep breath, turn your body towards the foot that is in front. Slowly lift your arms up and stretch out.
