Virabhadrasana 3 is the final asana in the traditional three-pose Virabhadrasana series. The first pose in the series represents the arrival of the warrior, materializing out of the ground. The second pose is the warrior sighting his enemy and preparing for battle. This final pose symbolizes moving quickly to attack the enemy.
Traditionally, Virabhadrasana 3 is believed to stimulate the sahasrara (crown) chakra, thereby providing a connection to the universe and a oneness with the Divine. As part of a spiritual practice, activating the crown chakra through this asana brings ego-free serenity, inner peace and joy.
In addition to its physical benefits, this pose reduces anxiety by calming the mind. It can also help improve memory and concentration.
