I was wondering, can I find super easy yoga poses?

You have not written your age, flexibility or fitness levels. For example, some people who do not do yoga can easily do padmasana or lotus pose whereas for some people it requires perseverance and patience to achieve this asana. Therefore easiest yoga poses will vary from person to person.

Even for starting with easy yoga poses, seek guidance of an expert. Understand the concepts of yoga and the correct technique for each asana.

Here are some of the yoga poses which can be done by any person who does not have any known medical problem. Advantage of these poses is that less flexible people can also attempt these poses, except inversions. Even if you do not attain the perfect pose in the beginning, you can stretch till your body permits.

Easiest Yoga Poses

Standing. Tadasana (Mountain Pose), Trikonasana (Triangle Pose), Vrikshasana (Tree Pose)

Seated Poses. Baddha Konasana (Bound Angle Pose),
Sukhasana (Easy Pose), Vajrasana (Diamond Pose), Padmasana (Lotus Pose)

Forward Bends. Janu Sirshasana (Head-to-Knee Forward Bend) or Paschimottanasana (Seated Forward Bend)

Backbends. Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose), Dhanurasana (Bow Pose), Shalabhasana (Locust Pose), Ushtrasana (Camel Pose)

Inversions. For these asanas, it is recommended to learn form an expert teacher. Halasana (Plow Pose), Sarvanghasana (Shoulderstand), Shirshasana (Headstand)

For relaxation.
Shavasana (Corpse Pose), Yoga Nidra

Note: After doing yoga poses,you can do few rounds of alom vilom breathing or rhythmic breathing. If you find it beneficial, learn more pranayama techniques.

Hope this helps
