This Asana is not as easy as it seems. As a safety guideline, listen to your body and stay within your limits. It is advisable to do this pose and other Yoga Exercises under the supervision of a Yoga instructor.

Locust Pose encourages concentration and perseverance. Although this posture may feel super strange at first, keep at it! Let your fingers enjoy a little freedom from each other because this is also the only posture where you get to spread them apart.


How to Do:
^ Setup for this posture is of paramount importance
^ Roll your arms under your body, placing your elbows against your abdomen as close 
   as you can, palms flat on the floor. Spread your fingers so that they’re pointing toward 
   your knees; this will give you a nice strong grip
^ Relax, keeping your body firm and steady
^ Once your legs are up, breathe normally in and out through your nose and keep using 
   the strength in your hands and arms to maintain your weight to the front of your body, 
    so you can hold your legs up for as long as you can
^ The more you life your legs, the easier it gets

Benefits:
^ All the same benefits as cobra pose, but amped up a bit!
^ Firms the buttocks and hips
^ Increases spinal strength
^ Increases flexibility and tone in the spinal muscles
^ Strengthens the shoulders, arm and back muscles
^ Increases circulation
^ May help cure tennis elbow


This Asana is not as easy as it seems. As a safety guideline, listen to your body and stay within your limits. It is advisable to do this pose and other Yoga Exercises under the supervision of a Yoga instructor.
