I am doing a plank challenge now. I am currently up to a 3.5 minute plank. I use focused yoga breathing so i my mind does not focus on the muscle strain. tomorrow i go up to 4 minutes.

... it depends on the day and what I'm feeling in that moment ~ challenging poses can be a favorite once I realize I'm stronger than when I tried it before ~ another pose I am practicing is the Wheel emoticon

half moon pose -- mostly because I can hold it up there but I haven't "mastered" it yet. I love the challenge.

Inversion poses have felt extra good to me lately. I think it's because I'm on my feet so much that it feels incredible to be upside down for awhile.

One of my favorites from last week is the Bridge Pose.

I like it because.....

Stretches the chest, neck, and spine
Calms the brain and helps alleviate stress and mild depression
Stimulates abdominal organs, lungs, and thyroid
Rejuvenates tired legs
Improves digestion
Helps relieve the symptoms of menopause
Reduces anxiety, fatigue, backache, headache, and insomnia
Therapeutic for asthma, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, and sinusitis
