A true warrior is a combination of characteristics: strength, clarity, composure, and fearlessness.
To awaken your inner warrior, it is vital you dig deep and recognize your own desires, truths, and powers. Being a warrior and standing up for what you believe in doesn’t mean you have to be the most physically powerful person, nor the fastest or most agile. A true warrior comes from within: being firm in your resolve, true to your beliefs, and learning to bend and not break.
Yoga guides us to turn our attention and awareness inward with the intention of recognizing and releasing our inner truth and sharing it with the world. When you practice yoga with an emphasis on uncovering your personal truth, you begin to discover and cultivate your unique power and gifts. Through a dedicated yoga practice, we strengthen our external body and fortify our inner resolve. By becoming still and calm, you can discover what motivates you. Then, you know what you want and what you are willing to take a stand for, without fear.
For most of us, the journey commences with the physical practice of yoga and we advance by learning to focus more on our inner self. Many variations of Virabhadrasana or Warrior pose aid us in feeling strong and calm. Warrior I, Warrior II, Humble Warrior, Reverse Warrior, Dancing Warrior, and Warrior III are commonly seen in Hatha yoga. In each of these postures, your feet or one foot in the case of Warrior III, are firmly rooted into the earth.
When we connect to the support of the ground beneath our feet, we trust our inner strength.
Tap into your warrior spirit this week. We all have a warrior, or source of strength within each of us. It's the part of yourself that is connected to how powerful you are.
