My favorite yoga poses

The end of August was very physically and emotionally draining for me. During such stressful times, I usually seek yoga practice in order to calm my mind and relax the body.

I recently switched yoga studios, and the experience has been so different–not in a bad way, but in the sense that I’m learning many new things. Every instructor has their own teaching style, as well as their own favorite poses. Using that as my inspiration, for this edition of Workout Wednesdays, I want to share my favorite yoga poses with all of you.

You should be able to do most of these at a beginner’s level. Check them out individually, or complete them all in your next practice! Poses 1 through 4 are a very common sequence, and one of my favorites to flow through.

  1. High Plank
  2. Four-Limbed Staff Pose (Chaturanga)
  3. Downward-Facing Dog
  4. Upward-Facing Dog
  5. Boat Pose
  6. Dancer’s Pose
  7. Plow Pose
  8. Supported Shoulderstand
  9. Bridge Pose
  10. Pigeon Pose
