(Serpent Posture)

This asana resembles raising serpent, hence it is named as Bhujangasana.


  1. Lie down in prone pose
  2. Put the palms to the side of the chest and bring elbows nearer
  3. Stretch the chin and raise the chin and body up to the naval
  4. Stay in that posture comfortably and gradually, slowly come back to prone pose and relax.


It prevents spondilytis and hunchback. It gives strength to the spinal cord. Yoga texts often state Kundalini raises in this asana.
