I'll give pidgeon pose and forward fold a try, I loathe them both and they usually really piss me off after just a few seconds :(.

YES! This is especially for you! Can't wait to see how it goes for ya!  :D  #wooosahhhh

I am so in! Great challenge! I am not a instagram fan, so will not share my pics there, but still will be in. My poses are forward fold and down dog- i can go in wheel an pigeon easily, but bring my heels to the mat in down dog? No way...funny, no? Its all about the hamstrings i guess!

Am definitely in, will try super hard to stick to this challenge, although I'm sure my oh-so-regular 12-hour oncall shifts will get in the way!  I think my pose will be half bound lotus west extension, not a nemesis but I'm sure I could do better!
