What is your favorite yoga pose? by Share Yoga’s Twitter Followers

Our friends on Twitter share with us their favorite yoga poses

The results are in from our first ever (extremely informal yet wholly scientific) Twitter poll. I asked our Twitter followers: What is your favorite yoga pose & why? With over 17 responses, only one pose was repeated more than once (see picture), which scientifically proves:

  1. Yoga has something for everybody and
  2. Our Twitter followers are unique individuals with their own wonderful tastes and inclinations, which is exactly what I had suspected. 🙂
  3. I need to review some of the Sanskrit names because I had to look up a couple of these.
Standing Bow Pose (Source: bikramyogabozeman.org)
Standing Bow Pose was the only pose to receive more than one vote (Source: bikramyogabozeman.org) PS Mine doesn't look like this yet.

Here’s what some of our Twittering yogis had to say:

astrid_amalia @shareyoga Sun Salutation! It really wakes me up in the morning

YogiSamantha @shareyoga mine shifts all the time. Eka Pada Raja Kapotasana because today I could reach my toe from over head! Never thought I would do that

arleigh @shareyoga supta virasana, feels like it opens my torso after slouching over steering wheel, computer, cooking, child, work.

SMKieras @shareyoga My favorite is standing bow pulling pose – Makes me feel accomplished b/c I’m aiming for perfect balance – inspiring!

madnessisay Icon_lock @shareyoga right now, it’s bakasana. i’ve discovered a really great prop trick that helps upper body strength & aids in the “flying” feeling

ninjabug @shareyoga downward dog – it’s familiar but always new

YogaGyptc @shareyoga my fav in headstand. I am an inversion junkie for sure

sarvasoap @shareyoga honestly, a good old fashioned paschimottanasana 🙂 releases tension from hours of sitting and gets me grounded and centered.

misstania @shareyoga Bitilasana/Cow Pose – love how I feel after doing this posture – very happy!

Jenmalen @shareyoga my favourite pose- today, because it changes often- is the triangle.LOVE that beautiful stretch on the
outer edge of my hip

joshpolich108 @shareyoga cow face. Don’t know just love it!

KaitlinJean @shareyoga My favorite pose is Urdhva Prasarita Ekapadasana or Standing Split. It’s a great perspective shift.

JasonAg @shareyoga I love tree pose too! One of my favorites is Urdhva Dhanurasana (Wheel Pose). Feels great for my back and wrists.

claraharris @shareyoga fav pose: fish pose b/c it makes my whole body happy, inside and out

jodidempster @shareyoga standing bow pose. It is not only one of the most graceful poses but also incredibly powerful in mind and spirit.

SophiaDembling @shareyoga Seated yoga mudra feels so darn good–I love the pressure on the top of my head. 

areboyle @shareyoga Half Moon pose, I still can’t do it for more than a few seconds, but in those few seconds, I feel strong. It’s a great pose.

Now if that doesn’t make you want to get off the computer for a few minutes and try a “good ol’ fashioned paschimottanasana”, then I don’t know what will!

  1. By the way, I love Cow Face Pose (Gomukhasana), too. Although I did state that Tree Pose and Bridge pose are my favorites. I think Cow Face Pose is nice because it deals with harnessing opposing energies moving in different directions. Just a thought.
