Day 9: Warrior 1 / Virabhadrasana I
I am loving all of the feedback I am getting from those of you taking the #MonkeySplitsGoneBananas challenge on Instagram and who have been joining in on Periscope each day as I share with you my practice on these daily poses! We are headed into the mid-way point of the challenge and should be smooth sailing from here!
As you lift your torso and arms into a long line into the air, dig your back heel into the ground and rotate the back leg hip toward your front knee. This will train your hips to square for your monkey splits.
Deepen the stretch by sinking the sit bones toward the floor while elongating your body high with arms straight above your head. If you feel off balance, press the arms out to your side like an airplane or make a new shape that helps you stay centered.
