WARRIOR ONE. Stretches and strengthens the thighs, calves, and ankles; builds confidence. A | Stand with your feet about 4 feet apart. Turn your left foot out 90 degrees and turn your right foot in 45 degrees. Rotate your torso so your hips and shoulders face in the same direction as your left foot. Keeping both feet pressed into the ground, raise your arms over your head with your palms about shoulder-width apart. B | Slowly bend your left knee until your thigh is parallel to the ground and your knee is aligned over your left ankle—not extending over your toes. If you feel unstable, shorten the distance between your feet. Gaze straight ahead. For more of a challenge, press your palms together and gaze up. Hold for 5 full breaths, then return to the starting position. Repeat on the right side.
