I find that the most satisfying and safe way to practice Reverse Warrior is to focus on the side bend, only allowing slight extension in the upper spine. With a few conscious and powerful breaths directed to that side body opening can be a great experience of liberation.
Pay attention and listen to your body, move slowly and with intention.
When a practice takes me to Urdhva Dhanurasana it feels like a few breaths of celebration. This is the pose that most often brings to to a place or emotional release and a deeper connection with myself and the moment. I have often come down from a third round of Urdhva Dhanurasana and felt so very full of life and bliss that there in a smile on my face and tears in my eyes. Urdhva Dhanurasana makes me feel open hearted, strong, awake, and full of energy.
