May The Warrior Fly

The Visvamitrasana, also known as Flying warrior pose, is a very challenging pose. The trick is to warm up the hamstrings with everything you got: forward folds, heron, dolphin etc. Start from lizard pose, tuck arm (shoulder if possible) under knee. When lifting, rotate so you don’t look in the ground. Work slowly, and use your airborne time to extend the leg while breathing.

Good preparations are: Forward folds, janu sirsasana, heron pose, Compass Pose⁣, Side Plank⁣, Parighasana⁣, Parivrtta Janu Sirsasana⁣, Parsvakonasana and Ardha Visvamitrasana⁣, which is a modification with a knee in ground.
