Virabhadrasana III, or more commonly known as Warrior 3, has several physical and mental benefits. Physically, it strengthens the legs, ankles, shoulders, back and core. By toning the entire body it promotes better posture as well. Mentally, it increases circulation which improves memory and concentration and will leave you feeling energized. So instead of reaching for your morning coffee, try holding Warrior 3 on each leg for three to five breaths.
