Cobra - Bhujangasana

This posture is a remedy for many of today's maladies including poor posture, stress and low self- confidence

It can feel frustrating at first because we are not accustomed to using the muscles of our backs. Stretching the throat, chest and belly can be uncomfortable at first. Engage the back muscles as much as possible, bending the spine backward and lengthening the front.

Benefits 
Cobra strengthens the backside of the body especially the spine. Stretches the front side and increases our energy. The kidneys and adrenal glands are compressed and gently massaged reducing cortisol and therefore stress. Pressure on the pelvis increases testosterone, increasing self esteem and confidence. The posture helps us breathe into the upper portions of the lungs, expanding our lung capacity.

WHY WE LVE YOGA

The quality of my life with the addition of Yin Yoga has improved significantly. I am 69 years old and began a regular practice of 2-3 Yin sessions weekly 3 years ago which enables me to engage in a couple of high exertion activities. One is basketball with men 30 or more years younger who know the game and play well. The games are intense and physical! The other activity is back-packing 3-4 nights in National Parks or the Appalachian Trial. It's the slow intentional stretching Yin Yoga provides which allows me on a basketball court and on the hiking trails. The instructors are adept in working with men as well as women. I like the way the instructors explain the benefit of each position, the content is practical and applicable. Most days with Yin I struggle some, if not a lot. The result is an immediate feeling of relief, I am far less tight and rigid. The pay off for the discomfort during class is fast! Yin and Yoga Oasis are part of a rule of life I follow. Living is much better for it.
