The Best of the Best Yoga Poses

December 05, 2013 2 min read

Yoga has got to be one of my favorite types of exercise. It's so relaxing, but it's also an excellent workout thanks to the bodyweight exercises it involves. I walk out of each Yoga session feeling both relaxed and drained - the perfect combination! Here's a nifty secret that Yogis don't often share: there are a few poses that work better than others. Below you'll find a few of the best Yoga poses to improve your health beyond just the benefits of exercises:

Twisting Chair Pose

Twisting in this pose works to stretch your lower back, improve your circulation, aid in healthy digestion, and help drain your liver and kidneys. It's a tough one, but it's worth working on that stretch. Get it right, and it will help you feel  so much better!


Locust Pose

This pose is exactly like the "Superman" exercise, just with your hands by your side. It's excellent for opening up and stretching your chest muscles, strengthening your legs, butt, and back, boosting your energy levels, and elongating your spinal column.


Crescent Lunge Pose

Also known as "Warrior One", this is a Yoga pose any P90X-er will recognize. It's wonderful for your heart rate, speeds up your metabolism, sets those legs and shoulders on fire, and gives your hips and lower back an amazing stretch.

Bridge Pose

Need to stretch out a sore or tight lower back? This pose is wonderful as a lower back stretch, but it also opens your shoulder and chest muscles - ideal for stretching after an intense upper body workout. The pose also gives your thyroid gland a gentle massage, increasing the production of metabolism-boosting hormones.

Plow Pose

It's a tough pose, but it works wonders for your endocrine system! The inverted pose gives your adrenal, pituitary, and thyroid gland a nice massage, and stimulates blood flow to these glands. This results in endorphins - the feel-good chemical - flooding your system, helping to de-stress and balance your body out.


Spinal Twist

Lying on your back in this twisted position is an amazing stretch for your lower back and legs, and it will help to work out the kinks in your digestive system as well. You'll find that this is a great weight loss pose, as it gets your stomach and intestines working to digest your food properly.


These aren't just some of MY favorite Yoga poses, but they're poses that will help you feel so much better as well! Try them, and you'll see that they work wonders.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
