The Camel Pose (Ustraasana)

Broadly considered as truly one of the best approaches to achieving holistic health, battling stress and fitness. Ustraasana, i.e. camel pose – can simply be described as kneeling backbend.

For achieving the pose, step by step procedure:

  1. Kneel on a floor along with your knees at thighs and hip width perpendicular to a floor. Keep your thighs straight.
  2. Move your hands to the rear, just over the buttocks. Now lean back till they reach the ankles, and slide your hands over your legs. To begin with you might not find this simple to do, and in the event that you feel a stress in the rear, do not push yourself beyond that stage.
  3. Turn your arms outwardly so the elbow creases face forwards, without squeezing the shoulder blades together. You are able to keep your neck in a relatively neutral position, neither bent nor extended, or drop your head back.
  4. To depart, bring your hands onto the very front of your pelvis, in the hip points. Inhale and lift upwards the head and torso by pushing on the hip points down, toward a floor.
  5. Guide by means of your chest by jutting the chin upwards to come up, not in case your head is back. You might work with a pad/mat/hard pillow/blanket under your knees and shins.

Beginners quite commonly might not have the ability to touch their hands for their feet without straining their back or neck.

When it does not work, the next thing is to rest each hand. Get a chair if you are still having trouble. Kneel for the pose with your back with your calves and feet below the seat along with the leading edge of the seat. Lean back and bring your hands to the high up on the leading or sides of the seat chair legs.
