Featured Asana: Bhujangasana

Bhujangasana (Cobra pose)

Bhujanga = serpent, snake

About the pose:

This is a prone backbend which can be quite strong in its full pose. As such, it is critical not to reduce this pose to bending in the lower back (lumbar area) and instead include lengthening of the upper back by drawing the shoulders back and down – elbows may be bend or straight; feet should be shoulder-width apart with toes pointing towards each other. Be mindful in this posture and avoid the full pose if you feel pinching or pain in the lower back.

 Key muscle groups:

Strengthens the entire spine and gluteal muscles Stretches the abdomen, chest and shoulders


–          Enhances subtleness and flexibility of the spine

–          Stimulates internal organs and lungs


 Enjoy your practice 🙂

Namaste, Evelyn
