The Veerabhadrasana III or Warrior 3 as it is familiarly referred to is the most difficult of the three warrior poses. It is a dynamic pose requiring strength and balance. In this asana, the heel and toes of one leg are pressed down while the thigh muscles are pulled up. The other leg is stretching back strong while the two arms are lifting and stretching forward. The whole body rests on one leg for stability while the other leg and the arms are stretched for balance. There is pull and push, forward and backward movement between the arms and the legs. The interplay between the arms and the legs demand concentration and heightens the awareness of the body.
