Arhanta Yoga teacher training is very well taught both physically and spiritually...
This training provided me with a learning experience above and beyond my expectations...
Just amazed with the knowledge and the confidence I gained in just four weeks of this training...
benefits of bhujangasana, instructions for cobra
Bhujangasana is always practiced as the first in the series of backward bending exercises. Its effect is to arch the spine back gently, promoting flexibility of the lower back in particular. The gentle pressure that the pose brings to bear on the abdomen also has a beneficial massaging effect on the internal organs.
“This always increases bodily heat, destroys all diseases, and by the practice of this posture the Serpent-
Goddess (kundalini) awakens.” Gerund Samhita
1. Lie down flat on the abdomen with the legs and feet together. Bring the forehead to the ground. Place the palms flat on the floor under the chest. Elbows are next to the body pointing upwards.
2. Inhale and raise the head up and back.
First the nose will come to the floor, then the chin. By using the strength in your lower back and by slightly pushing the hands into the floor raise your head and chest off the ground. Arch the upper body up and back, vertebra by vertebra. Keep your lower stomach, pelvis and legs on the ground. Elbows remain slightly bent. Shoulders are down, back and away from the ears. There is little pressure on hands.
3. Breathe comfortably as you hold the position. The chest is pushing forward; the head and shoulders are arched back. Beginners can hold the position for about 10
seconds and advanced students can slowly increase it up to 1 minute.
4. Take a deep breath and then exhale as you roll slowly out of the posture.
5. Repeat this 2-3 times and then relax on the abdomen, make a pillow of the hands, keep your big toes together and drop the heels outside.
