Cobra PoseYogi and San Francisco based Personal Trainer Yana demonstrates Cobra Pose.

Instructions: Lie prone on the mat with legs extended and the top of the feet touching the mat.

Bring hands (palms facing down) next to your chest with your elbows tucked in.

As you inhale, begin to lift the chest off the floor without the support of the hands.

Go up to a height where you can still keep the connection through your pubis to your legs.

Release the pose with an exhalation.

Key Points:

-The hands should be lightly touching the mat.

-Squeeze the buttocks at you rise.

-Squeeze the shoulder blades together.

Note: This was once a relatively easy pose for me to execute pre-birth. I am still working on the tightness and strength issue in my shoulders and back post-pregnancy.

Benefits:

-Strengthen the spine

-Stretches the chest, shoulders and abdomen

-Stimulate abdominal organs

-Heart and lungs opener

-Relieves stress and fatigue

-Great pose for sciatica management
