Bhujangasana comes from snaskrit words bhujanga means snake ans asana means psture.Bhujangasana increases body heat, destroys disease, and awakens kundalini.It helps in strengthening the abdominal and spinal muscles.Bhujangasana, the cobra, is the sixth of the 12 basic postures of hatha yoga. It is also the first of three back-strengthening exercises done as part of a normal yoga class.

How To Do

  • Release your hands from under your head. Bring them underneath your shoulders, palms facing down, lining up the tips of the fingers with the tops of the shoulders. The elbows should be bent and tucked in close to the body.
  • Now bring your legs together and touch your heels of the legs.Press the tops of the feet and thighs and the pubis firmly into the floor.
  • On an inhalation, begin to straighten the arms to lift the chest off the floor, going only to the height at which you can maintain a connection through your pubis to your legs. Press the tailbone toward the pubis and lift the pubis toward the navel.
  • Firm the shoulder blades against the back, puffing the side ribs forward. Lift through the top of the sternum but avoid pushing the front ribs forward, which only hardens the lower back. Distribute the backbend evenly throughout the entire spine.
  • Hold the pose anywhere from 15 to 30 seconds, breathing easily. Release back to the floor with an exhalation.
