Yoga for Trigger Points | Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose)

Posted by Judith Winer on

 Cobra Pose Anatomy Trigger Points

Technique

Lie on the belly, with the hands and elbows into the rib cage.

The legs come together and extend, pressing the feet into the floor and engaging the core toward the spine to protect the lumbar area.

Lift the torso up from the floor, with the hip bones grounded into the mat. The gaze is forward.

The hands are not used to press into the floor; the spinal extensors must contract to lift the upper body against gravity for full benefit.
