Cowherd Pose (Gorakshasana)

In Sanskrit, go means cow, raksha means protector, and asana means pose. The pose is most well-liked for meditation. The name of this yoga is related to Lord Shiva, as he's known as the lord of cattle and further as the lord of meditation. If you are having problems with your foot or leg joints, and knee pain stay away from doing cowherd pose. Gorakshasana should not be performed by those who suffer from sciatica or other lower spinal problems.
