This is from a recent yoga class photo shoot. I was a little nervous about taking photos during class. I didn't want to be obtrusive, I wasn't sure how the lighting would be and I knew to get the shots I wanted, I would have to pretty much do photography yoga. Lay on the floor, lots of squats, crouch and move.
This pose is Warrior 2, Virabradrasana 2. It teaches strength, power, stillness and focus. It fires up the legs and core, opens the hips and chest and stokes the lower 4 chakras. Practicing Warrior 2 gives us the strength to endure and make our way through life's battles, small and large.
