Right away, when I thought of my favorite pose, my mind went to savasana. I love the t-shirt that Beth wears that says "When's Savasana?" That's me for sure.
There are also many strength poses that I enjoy to get me to a great savasana at the end of my practice. t's actually quite difficult to choose one pose. I love them all in many different ways.
For some reason Side Plank has always felt really good in my body. Making this shape feels fun to me.
I love how we do side plank on both sides. I like to take in the change of view.
I feel incredibly grounded through my hand and through the knife edge of my foot.
It is a wonderfully strong balance pose.
I love the motion of working to lift my upper leg. I feel my center engage and I feel my shoulders and arm and wrist working.
My concentration is focused in this pose. I often have to remind myself to breathe here.
I feel like a falling star. I love to feel the levity of my upper arm and leg.
Some days I chose to put my bottom knee down on the ground for extra support if I am not feeling the upper body strength. Part of my practice is accepting that some days I have it and some days I don't. And that's totally okay!Practice what you preach Tara :) Be a C student! Yoga strengthens me and humbles me all at the same time. Isn't that interesting?
