Virabhadrasana- the warrior Pose is commemorated in the yoga world as the “spiritual warrior”.
It is a reminder of the perfect balance between maintaining a connection to the past yet holding a strong intention for our future.
We balance the weight evenly in the middle, we centre and this grounds us in the present moment. Go stuck to the mat.
The back leg and arm provide the anchor for the past. An opportunity for refelction, to look back at where we have been and say thank you.
The front leg is strong, your arm outstetched with a fixed gaze over the middle finger moving you forward, brave, with confidence.
Next time you drop into warrior pose come to it with a new mind. Harness the lessons of the past with the awareness of moving with focus and faith in the direction of your chosen future whist evenly balanced and firmly rooted in the now.
