Full Locust Pose

Beginner’s Tip

Beginners generally have problems sustaining the carry of their trunk and legs during this pose. Begin the pose with your hands resting on the ground, a touch back from the shoulders, nearer to your waist. Inhale and gently push your hands against the ground to assist in carrying the higher trunk. Then, keep the hands in situ as you are doing the pose, or once a number of breaths, once you’ve established the carry of the chest, swing them back to the position delineated higher than in step three.

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 - Bring your arms down by your sides along with your palms facing the ground. Stretch your legs straight out behind you with your feet on the mat.
2 - Put your forehead or your chin on the mat. Move your shoulders back and right down to open your chest.
3 - Inhale and carry your head, chest, and arms up off the ground. Keep your arms straight behind you. Reach through all ten fingers and switch your hands in such a way that your thumbs are pointed down. Keep your shoulders sloping down your back.
4 - Keep your legs together so that your knees start to rise off the ground. At the same time, strive to not tighten your butt an excessive amount as you do an acrobatic stunt. Press your feet powerfully into the ground.
5 - Maintain your gaze on the ground directly ahead of you in order to keep your neck in a very neutral position. Hold this posture for 3 to 8 breaths. Rest on the ground as you exhale. Bring your head to at least one side and rest your cheek on it.
