Virabhadra is the name of a fierce warrior, an incarnation of lord Shiva, described as having a thousand heads, a thousand eyes, and a thousand feet; wielding a thousand clubs; and wearing a tiger’s skin.

Position of Readiness

Tadasana (mountain pose) with hands at sides.


Standing in Tadasana (mountain pose) take a large step forward, bending your leading leg at knee and sinking into the posture, keeping the feet hip width apart and facing forward. Make sure the right knee is directly over the right ankle. If you need to, slide the feet further apart.

Take the hands to the hips and square the hips and the shoulders to the front wall.

Press the crown of your head away from your shoulders and allow the pressing to elongate your spine. Expand your chest by pressing out through your chest points.

Raise your arms overhead and press your fingertips away from your shoulders.

Bend your leading knee and sink into the posture, allowing your buttock bones to become heavy and your tailbone to relax.

Focus at a point in your front and breathe. Go for about 5 deep breaths,

Bring down your arms and get your legs together. After completing the abovementioned steps reverse the position.


Warrior I strengthens the legs, opens the hips and chest and stretches the arms and legs. Warrior I develops concentration and balance. This pose improves circulation and respiration and energizes the entire body. Virabhadrasana also builds and generates confidence.
