Commonly called the warrior postures, Veerabhadrasana series is used for strength, flexibility and balance. Veerabhadrasana 1 is brilliant asana to improve flexibility, strength and focus.
This is a widely practiced standing asana. Besides, increasing the lower back strength and flexibility, it also increases focus. A spiritual warrior bravely does battle with the universal enemy. That is, self-ignorance (avidya), the ultimate source of all our suffering.
Self-awareness and self-confidence are the properties of the Manipura Chakra. On the physical level the function of this Chakra is similar to that of a fireplace. Just as a mother protects and nourishes her child, the Manipura Chakra safeguards and supports our life by distributing the energy that we take in through eating, drinking and breathing.
