We Are All Warriors

We are all Warriors we just have different fields of battle and different ‘enemies’. My personal fights are not nearly as selfless as those of our Veterans and I am most grateful for their service. I am not comparing the plights of the ordinary citizen to those of the Military. I am merely saying we are all battling something and we can learn to cope more valiantly by practicing Yoga. It’s true! Check it out.

Warrior Yoga

In yoga, all postures can develop qualities of the warrior; the Physical Warrior: Physical Strength, Endurance, Honor, Courage, Discipline, And the Spiritual Warrior: Release, Open-heartedness, Balance, Unconditional Love, Peace.

There are a series of poses specifically called ‘Warrior’ or Virabhadrasana and offer all manner of variations. The 3 basic Warrior poses are shown above.

In Indian lore Virabhadra was a fierce warrior who had a thousand heads, a thousand eyes, and a thousand feet, wielding a thousand clubs! Yikes! I’m scared.

  • Space perception
  • Finding ease within effort
  • Release unneeded tensions in body/mind/life
