Bhujangasana,Cobra Pose,yoga

The Cobra Pose is called Bhujangasana in Sanskrit. It is named so because when we are in this pose, our posture resembles a snake. Moreover a snake has strong and straight spine. This pose would help us to keep our spine well balanced.

How to Do Cobra Pose
> After arranging your yoga mat on floor, just lie face-down.
> Keep your palms pasted on the floor. Keep both the legs together and stretched.
> Now drag your palms below your shoulders and inhale.
> Press your palms on the floor and try lifting your back upward.
> Lift your body to the level where you are on your palms and toes.
> Finally arrange your torso straight so as your head comes just over your palms. Here the whole body would look like a cobra with its raised head.

You can revert to your original position by resting your whole body flat on the floor.
