What it is: Anybody who has ever taken a yoga class knows the warrior poses. These poses are a staple for a reason – forming a strong base and focusing the mind with an added bonus of stretching and opening both the legs/hips as well as shoulders/chest.
Why we love it: The warrior poses strengthen the legs, and open the muscles across the chest and arms, while developing concentration and balance. It also helps to improve circulation and breathing.

Younger kids will love the strong “warrior” connotation associated with this pose. Older students will love the challenge presented by balancing in Warrior III.
