Ask anyone who practices yoga frequently if they have a favorite pose, and I'll bet they'll be able to name a few. I remember the first yoga class I took where I actually let go and truly practiced yoga. I have to be honest. It took me a few classes to really check my bags at the door. I had difficulty shutting out the outside world and focusing on myself and my mat. But once I did, I fell in love. Hard.
Today I'm sharing my 5 favorite poses and why each one resonates with me.
1. Pigeon Pose
2. Boat Pose
3. Seated Spinal Twist
4. Extended Side Angle Pose
5. The Corpse Pose
Honorable Mention: Child's Pose
