Different teachers teach different positions for the back foot. But surely the right angle is important for the safety of the knee!
I think that it has to be at an angle with the front foot that makes it about five to twelve (or five past), which is how Rachel teaches it. That makes it easy to pull the back hip forward without twisting and potentially damaging the knee. Also it should be a little bit out to the side of the front foot, creating a broad base, with “space” for the hips when facing forwards.
Fiji, however, who is so particular about all the poses, seems to always use the same position for the back foot in Warrior one and two - she moves from Warrior two to one without mentioning repositioning the foot. Now I love Fiji, (you are one of my absolute favorites and I practice with you regularly!), but this has been bugging me for years now.
So I thought I’d open up the discussion here.
David, do you have any thoughts on this?
