Top Favorite Yoga Poses

I haven’t been doing yoga for that long at all. Actually only about a month, but I’m beginning to see results already. Which is good considering my ultimate goal this year is Scorpion Pose. I may have bit off a little more than I can chew with that goal considering I can’t really do a handstand.

I can feel a difference in my muscles and I’ve got a ton of energy! It also helps with calming my anxiety. I’m also able to sleep through the night and insomnia doesn’t come calling, I don’t have to take a Unisom either. There are 11 surprising perks to doing yoga & that’s is enough for me.

Since I’m a beginner I started the beginner circuit so I wouldn’t hurt myself. I’ve already found a few favorite poses I do every time I do yoga, I have branched out but only two or three times. It’s also really easy to do, you just hold the pose for a minute, you can do a workout in less than 10 minutes. You should listen to your body, if your hurting then your trying to do too much.

      I’m not very flexible so these poses are great. You can feel the muscles you use after your done, even if you only do 10 poses. If you start you’ll love it.

    I am new to yoga too, my goal is to do the crow pose…I just cannot seem to figure out the balance of it. I must say you have a great list here, I haven’t tried the “Thread the needle” pose before so I think I may give that a go!

    I’m just getting back into Yoga by doing a Yoga Shred challenge. I like to get lots of calories burned during a workout so I usually do Yoga for a bit and then leave it. Whenever I return I’m always amazed at how Yoga is so great for stress relief and feeling centered. Also my arms are looking so toned again! BTW I love downward dog. Thank you for sharing!

    I didn’t realize I hadn’t been here for a while. I like yoga, but with my littles, I can hardly get on the floor without them determining that I become a play gym. That Scorpion Pose looks tough. I like your goals. Good luck. Thanks for linking up with Turn it Up Tuesday.

      Haha aww! The kiddos would turn you into a jungle gym, that’s adorable. I was totally surprised about how energized it made me feel. I hope you & the little ones have a great day!

  9. Alignment is always key to yoga, and I’d say that there are lots of modifications to these poses to build up to the full expression – like in downward dog not focussing so much on having your heels down to the floor that your back is rounded like in the picture, but keeping a lovely long back, and bending knees if you need to and lifting the heels until you get to a place where you can keep the alignment and drop the heels eventually – as you say, you listen to your body.
