To ASPIRE is to aim your hopes and ambitions toward achieving something. Something just for you. Your goal, your future, your success, your peace of mind. To stand strong in the face of adversity.

Yoga Pose: Warrior II Virabhadrasana
Practice this strong foundation pose as you aspire to achieve your dreams.
Foundation. Start in Tadasana - Mountain Pose. Set your intention.
Stance. Step your feet apart so that the outer borders of your feet align with your wrists when your arms are spread wide. Turn your left foot out 90 degrees. Turn your back toes slightly to the left. The left knee cap should align with the center of the left ankle.
Exhale and bend your left knee towards 90 degrees. Press the outer right heel firmly to the floor.
Torso. Keep your torso and upper body upright in the center with your chest and and shoulders still facing center. Shoulders stay directly over the pelvis.
Arms. Lift and expand your arms to shoulder height.
Gaze. Soften your jaw and eyes. Turn your gaze to land on your left fingertips.
