Cow Face Pose (Gomukhasana)

The Cow Face Pose is also known as Gomukhasana. This is a basic yoga pose that helps to open up the hips. As the asana stretches the hips, arms, thighs, thorax, shoulders, and ankles, it helps with muscle relaxation. This pose is best for those who sit most of the day at work, as it will open your chest and hips.

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 - Beginning in Staff Pose, raise your right heel to the outside of your left hip and cross your right leg over your left, stacking knee on knee.
2 - To bring your left heel to the outside of your right hip, bend your left knee. Press down evenly with your sitting bones while keeping your knees aligned and stacked.
3 - Lift out of your lower back and extend your spine. Take a deep breath in and extend your right arm to the side, rotating it so the palm faces back and the thumb is downward.
4 - Bring your right arm behind your back with your palm facing out and upper arm drawn in close to your body as you exhale. Bend your elbow. Your right fingers are pointing at the base of your neck, and your elbow is pointing at your sacrum.
5 - Take a deep breath in and extend your left arm straight up to the ceiling, palm facing the midline. Reach your hand down toward your neck while bending your left elbow. As your hand reaches along the spine, bring your elbow up toward the ceiling and close to your face.
6 - Reach out your hands and touch each other. If you can, clasp your hands or fingers. Exhale to leave the position, carefully releasing your arms to your sides, and then resuming Staff Pose.
