Today I am sharing five of my favorite poses. I have about a billion favorites, it was difficult to narrow it down to only five. This will have to be a series! I have linked to sites that will tell you the proper technique to get into these poses.
This one is a heart opener, and it feels like a really good morning stretch.
I also think it is a beautiful pose.
This is a favorite of mine because it was a challenge that I had to conquer. It took me two months, which doesn't sound like a long time. But when you try something every day and fail every day, sixty days feels like a really long time. The hard work I put into it made me really proud of myself when I finally accomplished it.
This one is a great stretch for the legs. Can you tell I like to stretch?!
Quite a mouthful for that one! You should see the actual name of the pose - Utthita Parsvakonasana! I like binding poses. Because, no surprise here, they provide a good stretch! This one works your entire body. Impressive!
This pose is similar to the first one, in that it feels like a good stretch. This pose is a challenge for me because I have to trust my body when I lean back. I have a fear that I will fall, so my arms don't really want to go back this way. I have fallen, and guess what? I'm still here. So up we go again, learning to trust ourselves.
