Yoga - standing vs. groundwork

I much prefer seated yoga, or groundwork over standing yoga. I suppose both are necessary for a well-rounded practice, but the seated yoga has always felt better for me. It's as if the standing practices are an exercise in breaking my body like you'd break a horse to subjugate its will to yours, while the seated yoga might be likened to gentling or whispering a horse (not that I really know anything about that either).
.
Anyway, I still try to get 2-3 days of standing practice per week, but I look forward to the seated days.
