So just for fun this Friday, I thought I’d do a quick post about my favorite yoga post, and open it up to you. On any given day, there are a few poses that I gravitate to in my personal daily practice. I try to incorporate a balanced practice that includes a few Surya Namaskar (sun salutation) C and A; Virabadrasana (warrior) II; Trikonasana (triangle); and Vrkasana (Tree Pose). Plus, I add in some abs, backbends, twists and, of course, restorative poses. But, if you asked me point blank, “What is your favorite yoga pose?” Anyone who knows me, taught me or takes my classes knows that I’m a Matsayasana (Fish Pose) lover (see post pic of me blissfully chill in the pose during yoga teacher training).
I just love sinking into this heart opening gentle backbend. You can tell by the look on my face that the world around me has all but disappeared.
