Virabhadrasana is a series of poses named after a powerful warrior in Hindu mythology, Virabhadra. The name is derived from the Sanskrit language. However, in English it is commonly called “warrior pose.”
Virabhadra was created to destroy Daksha, the son of Brahma, in order to exact revenge. According to the legend, Daksha opposed the marriage of Shiva to his daughter Sati and cut her off from the family. The story varies depending on the Hindu tradition, but Sati eventually killed herself.
This name commemorates an idea of “spiritual warrior” who bravely battles the universal enemy: self-ignorance (avidya) – because it’s the cause of all suffering.
