5. Warrior Three
Warrior 3 requires a great deal of balance and concentration, so don’t be alarmed if you can’t do it at first. The best way to get into warrior 3 is to start with warrior 2. Stand on your mat with your feet wider than hip width apart, engage abs, turn your right foot out to the side, and extend your arms out to your sides. From warrior 2, extend your right arm down as far as you can to your right ankle to come into side triangle. Extend your left arm overhead. Then, drop both of your hands to the floor and lift your left leg into the air behind you. If you can, raise both of your arms out in front of you, look up, and hold as long as you can balance. If you can’t raise both arms yet, just take it one at a time.
