Camel Pose (Ushtrasana or Ustrasana)

Camel Pose is also known as Ushtrasana and Ustrasana. Camel Pose is a back-bending, kneeling yoga pose. While doing this, the body is shaped like a camel, which is why it's called Camel Pose. Typically, the yoga is done towards the end of the yoga class afterward to warm up your spine and body. The pose helps to relieve lower back pain while stretching the front of the body.
