Slow and easy start to strength in Warrior 2
≤45 min. Start lying down with any easy twist to bring your awareness to your back and side muscles before opening the hips with interesting variations on lunges to gain outer hip and low back strength. Have a towel or blanket at hand so that you can benefit from diagonal strengthening and access engagement of your hamstrings. The path to refining the front leg in Virabhadrasana 2 (Warrior 2) is fun and has lots of variety -- from sliding the front leg, to a mock speed skater stance. You'll start lying on your back, and end lying on your back in an easeful savasana.
