I Should go Do Yoga....Prep for Warrior 3

Warrior 3 is one of the ultimate balancing postures in yoga, and it’s likely you’ll come across it regularly in class! It makes me feel super strong and powerful when I practice this posture, because it works strength and balance in the core and legs (and it kinda makes me look like superwoman ;-)).

Grab yourself a block, if you have one (if not, a thick book will do) and a bolster or big sofa cushion/a few pillows, get into your comfies and get ready to breathe the pain away!
