Benefits Of Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose)

Explaining the benefits, she further added, "Day 1 - #Bhujangasana to strengthen the spine, stimulate abdominal organs, and relieve stress & fatigue. Create reels remix of the poses every day & join me for this special series of #DailyYogaWithMe."

Here are some reasons why Bhujangasana should be a part of your daily workout regimen:

  • Helps open up the shoulders and neck to alleviate pain
  • Reduces fatigue and tension
  • Tones the abdomen
  • Improves blood circulation by expanding the chest
  • Strengthens the shoulders and back
  • Improves upper and middle back flexibility
  • It may also benefit those with respiratory problems

How To Do It?

Here is how you can perform the cobra pose:

  • Lie on your stomach on the floor with your legs stretched back, tops of your feet on the floor. Spread your hands on the floor under your shoulders.
  • Firmly press the tops of the feet, thighs, and pubis onto the floor.
  • Inhale and straighten your arms to lift your chest off the floor. Make sure that you only raise it high enough to maintain a connection between your pubis and your legs. Lift the pubis toward the navel while pressing the tailbone toward the pubis. The hip points should be narrowed. Firm the buttocks but do not overdo it.
  • Puff the side ribs forward by pressing the shoulder blades into the back. Lift through the top of your sternum, but do not press your front ribs forward, since this will simply stiffen your lower back. Spread the backbend equally over your entire spine.
  • Hold the position for 15 to 30 seconds while breathing normally. With an exhale, return to the floor.
