Yoga: What is your favorite pose?

I have to say mine is plow or folded plow pose! :)
I enjoy shoulder stands and then going into plow and folded plow.

Great way to finish a class!

    I haven't gotten to handstands yet! Maybe someday.

    Haha I love pidgeon and child's pose! I could totally fall asleep doing both.

    Wheel or crane. The focus I muster for either feels like meditation--so empowering.

    I love the feeling after half twists when you bind! So amazing.
    (is the pose really called "Half Lord of the Fishes Pose"?)

    Cat/Cow pose, bound angle pose, downward facing dog, and lord of the dance pose. Usually get a good stretch with these.

    LOL @ Irish yoga!!

    I like too many poses, for different reasons :) If I want to stretch most all of what I need stretched at once, I love Reclining Frog Pose. I come into that one from the top back. Pushing off the floor doesn't really do it for me the same way (same with wheel).

    This one:

    For another full stretch feeling, I love Pigeon where you lie down over the front leg first and then do the various back-arched things. Move the front leg a bit to finish with a split and everything is stretched out so great!

    Half Lord of the Fishes, that is the very best stretch for me.
