Gotta say downward facing dog and sunsalutations.

HE GIVES POWER TO THE FAINT, AND TO THOSE WHO HAVE NO MIGHT HE INCREASES STRENGTH. EVEN THE YOUTH SHALL FAINT AND BE WEARY, AND THE YOUNG MEN SHALL UTTERLY FALL; BUT THEY WHO WAIT UPON THE LORD SHALL RENEW THEIR STRENGTH; THEY SHALL MOUNT UP WITH WINGS AS EAGLES, THEY SHALL RUN, AND NOT BE WEARY, AND THEY SHALL WALK, AND NOT FAINT.

The arms of Eagle pose, where you curve the hands around, linking thumbs and opening up the shooulder blades? I move it up, inhale, and down slowly, exhaling. Can even do this in the car, or right before I'm about to lose my temper with my children.

I also love downward facing dog to release the tension in my back and neck.

I do a warrior and triangle sequence that really seems to release a lot of pent up emotion. Eagle pose is also good for when I'm stressed because I tend to hold negative emotions in my neck and shoulders.

All in all, Yoga is a great stress reliever for me no matter what poses I'm doing!

Hmmmm.....I start out with mountain, say a prayer of thanks, forward bend, chair, forward bend, then usually step back to down dog, plank, up dog, plank, down dog, (this series is my heart rate exercise, so I do it several times.) Then, I will sit and do various stretches on the floor, twists, and also bridge pose. If I have time I will do both warrior poses, triangle, and side angel poses. I throw in down dogs and child poses whenever I need a break. Pigeon is very relaxing toward the end of the routine. I rarely do balance poses, but my favorite is stork, then tree.

Is there a certain pose or practice that gets you through the day when you are really stressed out? Please share it here! :)
