Asana alignment: Warrior 1 pose aka Virabhadrasana 1

Warrior I Pose is filled with opposing alignments, but when all of the opposing movements work together, the pose offers a full-body experience. You will stretch the ankles and calves, strengthen the quadriceps and back, lengthen the hip flexors, and stretch your upper body and arms. There’s almost no body part that doesn’t reap the rewards of holding Virabhadrasana I.
