Day 10: Virabhadrasana II - Ardha Chandrasana (Warrior 2 - Half Moon Pose)
Prioritize time for the things you’re working toward. So often, I find myself not moving toward my goals because I don’t have time. When I take a period of my day to dedicate to it, surprise! It gets done. Now this doesn’t mean we need to schedule every hour of our days, because that will just lead to exhaustion, disappointment, and no wiggle room for surprises. But, we can take a moment for something new!
Stand in Tadasana (Day 1) facing the long end of your mat. Step or jump your feet 3-5 feet apart. Keep the left toes pointing forward, right foot turns out 90 degrees. Line up the right heel with the arch of the left foot. Stand up tall and ground down through all four corners of your feet. Bend your right knee and stretch your arms wide. Be sure to keep the core engaged, mid back full, and prevent the lower back from dipping. Charge up your right leg, and inhale, look forward, and lean your weight onto your right foot as you press into your right hand (which is now in front of you about 1.5 feet and slightly to your right, and maybe on a block). The left leg pops up and stretches way back as you extend your heart forward for balance between the front and back of the standing foot. Exhale and bend your standing leg, reach further through your back foot, and step lightly back into Warrior II. Be aware of your front foot - it points forward the entire time, knee facing the same direction as the second toe. Try 2 more times! Caution: may include tumbling and giggles. If you are concerned for your safety, do this vinyasa with your back to a wall.
