Warrior One

How-to-do-Warrior-OneHi I’m Dr. Melissa West Welcome to Yoga Lifestyle with Melissa

Today we have a question that comes via my website contact form:

Today’s question comes from Marcelys from Venezuela 🙂

Hello Melissa!
First of all, thank you so much for replied my message about wild thing pose. I am looking forward to see the blog post!
On this opportunity, I am writing to you because I have some problems doing Warrior I. Recently, my hips just doesn’t want to point toward the bend leg.
Probably can be a misalignment on the straight leg.
Could you please recommend me yoga classes about warrior I?
Marcelys from Venezuela 🙂

Thank you for a great question Marcelys. First of all we have a whole beginner class on Warrior One that you might like to check out:

There are probably a couple of things going on and a couple of things that I can recommend. I suspect that you are experiencing some tightness in your psoas that needs to be addressed. So today I will show you a pose that can help get to the root cause of the problem and show you a modification for the pose.


Thank you for watching.
