The Warrior II pose can be very challenging to hold for long. Done correctly, your knee should bend to a 90-degree angle, with your shoulders back and your chest broad and open. Try practicing it against a flat wall to help you target your tight spots and develop stamina in your legs.
Stand with the back of your body against a flat wall and your feet 3 to 31/2 feet apart. Turn your left foot in slightly and turn your right leg out completely so your big toe points to the right. Raise both arms up so your wrists are directly above your shoulders.
