The Reverse Warrior (Viparita Virabhadrasana), a standing yoga posture, energises the entire body and extends to the waist. It is widely practised as a part of the "Dancing Warrior" sequence in Vinyasa Flow classes, which transitions from Warrior I to Warrior II and immediately into Reverse Warrior. Sidebending in the lunge position is called the "Reverse Warrior." Yoga often involves backbends and forward bends, although side bends are less common. Although they are difficult to access, the intercostal muscles between the ribs also require your attention. Reaching your right arm up first and then back second when performing a side stretch is beneficial. The upward movement toward the ceiling highlights the stretch along that side of the body. You would want to stretch equally on both sides if you were back bending. You can start reaching back once you have a beautiful, long-side body, but you might not move all that much. Use this position as a component of a fixed sequence. Himalayan Siddha Akshar shares everything about the Reverse Warrior Pose.
Beginning in Warrior 2, bend your right knee, raise your right hand, and palm upward.
Extend your right arm toward the roof as you inhale. Let it descend your left leg as you simultaneously lower your left hand. As you do so, bear in mind to maintain length in both of your side waists.
Tighten the muscles in your core by pressing your shoulder blades into your back and pulling your lower ribs in. As you gently bend your back, raise your chest. Look at your raised hand or back foot if you have neck or balance problems.
Keep the place for up to five breaths.
Allows for a deeper, more expansive breath by opening the chest and side body and relieving tension in the intercostal muscles surrounding the ribs.
Makes the legs stronger.
