And can she do plow pose without being suffocated?

I LOVE yoga, the type of yoga I do is vinyasa. I love movement with breath. I guess if I had to pick one pose to remain in it would be plank. I have fun with crow pose and standing bow pose feels so good.

Happy Baby pose. In Yin yoga, where you need to keep it for a long time and let go completely. It's quite emotionally intense for me - made me realize how much our body and mind/emotions are intertwined.

Tree pose, because it's easy and relaxing for me.

Mountain pose (tadasana) makes me feel strong and powerful.

Plank pose - because I've gotten better at it and that feels good.

The last time I took a class we were in downward dog for a lot of the class. My wrists and shoulders hurt so badly from all my weight there (I'm top heavy). It's one of my most least favorite poses now. But to each their own. I think I prefer things like Pilates over yoga so take my opinion from the angle yoga is one of my least favorite forms of exercise. The main reason I do it from time to time is because BF really enjoys it. For my workouts alone I prefer dance, HIIT, and weights.

I do like the clumsy flower, and the plunging airplane. But my favorite pose belongs in the adult section of LS.

I do have to agree with part of this - downward dog is a bit hard on my shoulders. I can only do this pose for one movement for like two mins. I could not do it repeatedly or for most of a session.

Yoga is supposed to heal not cause pain. Downward dog can be modified, by keeping a bend in the knees, to make more space for the shoulders. You can also use blocks or other props. Or replace the pose with another like puppy pose.

Remember is not about how the pose looks, but how it FEELS.

Have a blissful and beautiful day my friends!!!!!

I like all bended, twisted etc asanas. The ones that involve stretching - not so much. Maybe my favorite is bonded lotus.
