POTW: Ustrasana

wednesday_pre-post-natal_large0027-419x630This week’s POTW is Ustrasana, or Camel Pose!

Camel pose has many benefits including boosting one’s energy and mood, strengthening the back and opening the shoulders and chest!

How to:

Step 1: Come on to your knees with legs hip-width apart

Step 2: On an inhale, reach your tailbone toward your knees, creating space between your lower 
vertebrae and allowing your rib cage to expand

Step 3: Drop your hands toward your heels while keeping your chest raised, core engaged, and spine long.

Step 4: Lift your shoulders and gently lower the head and neck, gazing at the tip of your nose.
