Reverse Warrior Pose for Focus, Strength, and Calm
Reverse Warrior Pose is part of the Warrior series, which is a powerful set of poses known for building strength. Reverse Warrior requires a bit more balance than some of the other warrior poses as children are looking up with one arm reaching for the sky and one arm resting on the back leg.
Reverse Warrior Pose stretches and strengthens your child’s entire body while developing balance and coordination. Reverse Warrior increases mindful awareness and promotes inner calm. It also creates concentration and focus from the ground up.
What to Say
- Begin in Warrior II. Keep your front knee bent as you flip your front palm to face the sky.
- Lift your front arm toward the sky. Look up at your hand. Breathe in as you reach up higher. Rest your other hand on your back leg.
- Close your eyes. Take a deep breath. Let it out. Notice how you feel. Do you feel a gentle stretch in your side?
- Let’s shake it out and be a warrior on the side. Notice how this side feels. Is it different from the first?
