Topic 08.10 The Cobra

Lie on your stomach, in preparation for some back bends.The slow, uncoiling movements of the Cobra will develop strong back muscles as your spine rolls back, one vertebra at a time.

Place your hands under your shoulders and bring your forehead to the floor. Then slowly raise your chin, head, neck and as much of your back as you can, whilst straightening your arms. Some people will be flexible enough to touch their feet with their head. This is called the King Cobra.

Remember, it’s not important how fast you learn the asana.

The important thing is to keep stretching and relaxing.
