Stand with your legs wider than hip distance. Turn you right foot 90 degrees with your left foot remaining perpendicular. Bend your right leg. Your bent knee should be above the ankle. Raise your arms to shoulder height at the same time and look towards your right hand's fingertips.
Hold the pose for several breaths and then straighten the bent knee.
Repeat on the other side.
This move strengthens your thighs and glutes while also opening your hips.
Tips from Megan:
Remember to have super strong arms. Root down through your feet. Tuck in your tailbone and activate your core. Shoulders melt down the spine.
Perform warrior II and other great body sculpting poses in Megan's Revitalize classes on Wednesdays at 12 and Fridays at 9am. Revitalize de-stresses your body and kickstarts your metabolism. It's a core-based format that gently fuses Yoga with light cardio bursts and bodyweight training.
