#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!


Life has not been the same since finding Inspire Yoga in 2012. After the loss of a close friend, I found my mat to be a soft place to land in a difficult season of life. After attending classes consistently, I pursued the Inspire Yoga 200 and 300 hour teacher trainings and now hold my IYS 500 hour certification as well as E-RYT200 and RYT500 with Yoga Alliance. I love sharing yoga with people and getting to offer a space for them to be just as they are - whether broken, joyful, happy, uncertain ...there is a space for you here at Inspire Yoga. My blog posts are a reflection of my passion for yoga and how it has impacted my life in such a healing way. I am the membership director at Inspire Yoga Denton and love doing life with such an amazing community! Outside of yoga, I am wife to Colin and mama to Oliver and our sweet hound dog Ama.
