Ustrasana - The Camel
Ustra = camel.
Asana = posture or steady pose.
This posture will open the chest and hips, it provides a gentle back bend whist lengthening the front side of the body. Camel pose aids digestion and enhances the flow of prana.
How to Perform Ustrasana - The Camel Pose.
Begin on your knees with the tops of the feet on the floor, the hips above the knees and the shoulders above the hips. Lengthen the spine and lift the chest, reach your right hand down to your right ankle and your left hand towards your left ankle, lift your hips up and forwards and open your chest. Keep your neck in line with your spine. Breathe slowly for ten or more complete breaths and then lower your bottom onto your heels and relax your forehead to the floor resting in pose of the child.
If this posture feels uncomfortable try taking just one hand to the ankle at a time, reach the right hand towards the right ankle and breathe slowly for five breaths and then change sides.
If you want to move a little deeper place your hands onto the floor beside your feet.
