#IYPOW (Inspire Yoga Pose of the Week): Warrior II (view video demonstration)

A very common pose in yoga, this strong standing posture will strengthen you body, mind and spirit. Here’s what Inspire Yoga teacher, Christian, had to say about it:

“One of my favorite poses, Warrior II. Whether in the middle of a sequence or as an anchor pose. I can always ground down, close my eyes and focus on my breath all while feeling the strength in my legs and the opening of my hips. I love to change up the arms to make this pose new and challenging, great for settling the breath or building heat.”

Every Sunday we will share the pose of the week via social media. You are then invited to join in with us by posting your own interpretation of the pose and a short thought or inspiration that you receive from this pose. Make sure to use hashtag #IYPOW so we can see your pictures. Each month, one person (who shared and hashtagged) will be chosen to win an exclusive IY tank or tee!

All you have to do is share your pose and personal inspiration!


Wife, daughter, sister, and friend. Not to mention world adventurer, dreamer, yogi, and diy obsessed. In the past few years I have gotten married and become a full-timer in the yoga world. A big turning point in my life was a few years ago when I lost a very dear friend of mine. He was 24 years old at the time. I learned a lot during that season, but one thing that I took away for sure is that life is precious, moments are precious, and even the seemingly ordinary moments are beautiful and brilliant. So I'm here to share as it seems fit. Connect with me. I'd love to hear from you!
