Setu Bandha Sarvangasana (Bridge pose)
Bridge pose is excellent because it strengthens the spine and the legs. The pose also allows your chin to lock into your jugular notch, which stimulates the thyroid.
An excellent, detailed how-to can be found: Here.
Now, my favorite pose of all time:
Halasana (Plow pose)
Plow is another pose which stimulates the thyroid. It also stretches the spine and hamstrings. My favorite part about this pose is that it is an excellent de-stresser. I feel amazing every single time I do it; it relieves headaches and body tension or pain. It took me a while to be able to do this, so beginners, don't be discouraged.
How-to for this awesome pose can be found: Here.
Note: You can place your hands on the small of your back or extend them. I do this pose twice in one routine, the first with my hands on my back and the second with them extended.
"Mom, can you take pictures of me doing yoga?" received a similar look to her catching me taking pictures of my yogurt, but I think she's used to my craziness by now. That being said, would anyone be interested in seeing more of my favorite poses? It's interesting seeing pictures of myself doing yoga, so I'd definitely be interested in taking more.
