Deep Dive – Virabhadrasana 1 (Short Course, Intermediate)

A beginner level Asana, but one that might take a while to master.  Virabhadrasana1 is a standing Asana.  It has components of forward and backward extension, and even twists.  It requires collaborative effort of arms, legs, shoulders, back and hips.  If any of these parts are not performing optimally, it shows up in the Asana most commonly as strain on the knees, back or shoulders.
Explore some interesting variations and progressions of Virabhadrasana1 in this set of classes.

The Wings of Virabhadrasana1: Role of the Arms

The arms can make Virabhadrasana1 feel light, or heavy; broad or tall, dull or energising.  In the teaching methodology, Virabhadrasana1 is preceded by Vimanasana – a similar position with a different arm configuration.  To save our energy for the arm-work, we start with activating the legs in supine positions, work with the arms in isolation, and then integrate arm variations into Virabhadrasana1
