My favourite pose is Tree Pose!
It is a fundamental pose. Great for building balance and focus. If balance is a challenge the you can bring just the heel into the side of the standing leg. As you get the hang of the pose bring greater attention to hip alignment. Try on uneven surfaces (my favourite is barefoot under a tree) and/or with eyes closed.
