Yoga how to! Kate Kendall shows us warrior three

This posture is great for promoting balance and light heartedness. It also tones the butt and legs! Want to give it a try? Here’s how…

  1. From the top of your mat, bring your palms to touch at your chest, putting your thumbs to your heart.
  2. Standing on your right leg, lift your left thigh so it’s parallel to the ground.
  3. Pull your navel gently towards your spine to access your core strength.
  4. Inhale here. Then exhale and very slowly shoot your left leg back behind you.
  5. Press into your left heel and square your hips downward.
  6. Keep your core switched on whole time.
  7. Breathe deeply for five breaths.
  8. Repeat the posture on the other side.
