Warrior poses are some of the most common well known poses in yoga. Strong poses that reflect inner resolve. The transition from warrior 1 to warrior 3 is one that I really enjoy and with a few other poses can elicit a really strong and powerful balance challenge. Which you can try in this 7 minute yoga flow!

7 minute yoga flow
This 7 minute yoga flow is all standing. So it’s great for anyone with wrist issues. Plus it’s also fun to do post-workout when you’re at your wobbliest, to really challenge your balance! Start in tadasana with three grounding breaths. There are three rounds of work in this class. Each one progressively more challenging.
From standing, sit into chair pose. After that, lift the right heel and send the leg behind you planting the foot to the floor. Stand in warrior 1, with the option to lift the arms overhead.
Push off the back foot, and rise into standing with the back leg lifted away from the floor. Then tip forward into warrior 3. Find your balance.
After that rise back to standing bringing the back leg through to the front. As a result coming into another standing balance pose to challenge stability and strength.
Subsequently, put the foot back down and stand back into tadasana, mountain pose. Repeat everything on the other side. To sum up, this class is short and sweet but challenges balance and strength.
