Virabhadrasana II aka Warrior II is named after a fierce warrior. Many yoga practitioners think of the warrior as a spiritual warrior whom bravely does battle the universal enemy, self-ignorance, which is said to be the ultimate reason of suffering. Let this flow help you battle anything that no longer serves you.
