Virabhadrasana I is a foundational standing asana.  When its first taught, it strengthens the legs, and extends the arms and shoulders.

When we re-visit virabhadrasana I later in our learning path, we can realise that it has embedded in it elements of twisting action, back arching, and even forward extension.  This is a short session that includes a preparatory sequence for Virabhadrasana I, touching upon the forward and backward extension, and the twisting component, preparing the arms, and the legs.  Instead of trying to achieve a perfect position, this session demonstrates steps that will give firmness and confidence in the position.
