Sanskrit Name: Bhujangasana
English Translation: Cobra Pose
- Lie on your belly and bring your legs together so your knees are touching. Extend your arms straight out in front of you.
- As you lift your head up off the ground, begin to slowly walk your hands in, keeping your hips and thighs on the ground, but gently arching your lower back. Walk them in as far as you can, keeping your elbows slightly bent.
- Actively relax, keeping your gaze forward or lowering your head back between your shoulder blades.
- Stay here for five breaths, opening through the chest and abs, and then lower your torso back to the mat.
