Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose)

This class features the backbend bhujangasana (cobra pose) and related poses such as urdhva mukha svanasana (upward facing dog pose). This backbend is great for lifting energy levels and opening your chest. Unfortunately it is also a pose that can be problematic for your lower back. For many people the action of forcibly straightening your arms whilst in the pose can make the lumbar spine vulnerable to compression. This class guides you in ways of safely approaching bhujangasana. It highlights ways of accessing movement in your upper back so that strain is not placed on your lower back. It also demonstrates how supports can be used to modify the pose if necessary. click here to view the video.
