Warrior 1 Pose conquering the week ahead
We’ll start the week with the Warrior 1 pose, and take on everything with vim and vigor. We’ll be strong and conquer it all!
For this pose we’ll start at the front of our mat standing tall. With our hands at our sides. Now take a deep breathe in and a wide step back. (I’ll suggest keeping your legs shoulder width apart as well, it will help with keeping your balance.) Bring your arms up to shoulder height parallel to the floor and you can either bring them in prayer in front of you. Or raise them straight up over your head, pointing your forefingers to the sky (ceiling). Watch out world your a Warrior now, and ready to take on whatever comes your way.
Including your dog in on this pose
As far as your dog is concerned, this is a pose that your dog just being present is a great thing. If you need the extra support, you can call your dog over and lean up again them for that added support. Yes, there are poses you will get that support from your dogs and then there are those that you will lend support to your dog. If your dog is small enough you can lift them over your head or balance them on your front thigh. My dogs are all to big for this so I’ll let them search around for some treats or do their own thing. And if needed call them over for support.
Until tomorrow have a happy and healthy tail waggin’ day.
