Cobra Stretch (Bhujangasana)

Cobra Stretch is also known as Bhujangasana, and it's a reclining back-bending pose. In Sanskrit, the word for "snake" comes from the root bhuj, which also means "to bend or curve." The king cobra, in Indian mythology, is famed for its ability to glide while lifting the top third of its body into the air. Cobra Stretch is performed in cycles of Surya Namaskar asanas (Salute to the Sun). The curved structure of the asana flexes the deep back muscles, the abdomen, shoulders, spine, nerves, thorax, and lungs. Avoid this yoga if you have trouble getting up and down from the floor and you suffer from low back pain.

NOTE: Before you start this, consult your doctor or an exercise professional about this pose. Don't try to do it alone.


Tip To Do -

1 - Lie on your yoga mat on your stomach.
2 - Bring your elbows under your shoulders and parallel to one another as you rise up onto your forearms. Your legs should be straight back and approximately hip-width apart.
3 - The tops of your feet should be pressed into the mat with your toes spread widely.
4 - Roll your inner and outer thighs up and down while strengthening your legs. Lengthen your lower back by pressing your tailbone toward your feet and pressing down into your arms to lift your chest up.
