Day 2 Reverse Warrior Pose | Viparita Virabhadrasana
AHMWorld Yoga Challenge
Svadhishthana chakra is related to the element of water. Working with this energy center cultivates flexibility and adaptability. Water is an extremely adaptable element; it can be a a liquid, solid (ice), or gas (steam), repurposing itself to fit its environment. In the yoga tradition, a warrior must learn to be adaptable and acknowledge that brute strength or fighting are not the only way through a battle. Reverse Warrior, also nicknamed “Peaceful Warrior,” always makes me think of a warrior choosing to pull back from a fight, knowing when “enough is enough,” seeing the bigger picture, and choosing not to escalate the violence or drama. It requires great strength and bravery to do so. As the Twelfth Doctor said, “Never be cruel, never be cowardly... Remember – hate is always foolish…and love, is always wise.” Please share, where in your life can you practice being like water? How will you do it?
