TWO OF MY FAVORITE YOGA POSES

Currently I have 2 favorite yoga poses which both give me an emotional and euphoric outlet to how I’m feeling that particular day. I feel the emotion, I own it and then I let it go. BEST feeling ever!

PIGEON POSE

Benefits of pigeon pose (taken from Yoga Journal):

  • Stretches the thighs, groins and psoas, abdomen, chest and shoulders, and neck
  • Stimulates the abdominal organs
  • Opens the shoulders and chest 

*This is the pose that I was in when it all clicked, when I fell in love with yoga. I felt a very strong reaction to it and it was liberating!

CAMEL POSE

Benefits Camel Pose

  • Stretches your neck, chest, abdomen, thighs, hip flexors (psoas), groins, and ankles.
  • Strengthens your back muscles, gluteal muscles, and arm muscles (triceps).
  • Massages and stimulates your organs and charkas of the abdomen.

*This is also another pose that I really get a quick emotional release from and it’s so rewarding when you finally get to the point when you can reach those ankles! It took me a while to get there!

Happy day yogis!
