Beginner: The way that we flow in and out of the Exalted Warrior posture is perfect for a beginning student to learn how to move gracefuly with breath. Focus on keeping your legs stable, feet grounding into the earth as you move only your upper body. To move from Warrior II to Exalted Warrior, reach out through your finger tips with a weightless arm; lift your gaze and focus on your front fingers.
Advanced: You now have no trouble keeping a steady base with your legs as your upper body moves into Exalted Warrior. Instead, focus on opposing lines of energy in your arms. While one arm reaches out above your head, the other reaches behind you. Feel all of the muscles in your arms activated as you pull your arms away from center, stretching against one another.
