Camel Pose (Ustrasana)

Set of drawings of women performing the Camel Pose

Camel Pose is an intermediate back bend that stretches the abs, shoulders and chest. Camel Pose can help with back pain, fatigue and strengthens the back muscles. There are a few ways to modify Camel Pose until the Yogi has gained the flexibility needed for the full pose. Yogi’s with knee or hip issues use caution.

Drawings of people performing the Camel Pose represented in outline silhouettes

To do Camel Pose, begin kneeling with the knees about hip width apart with the toes facing back and pushing into the mat, sit back and root down through the feet. Bring the hands around to the ankles and raise the chest, shoulders back. Yogi’s not ready for the full posture, use a block under the hands next to the ankles.
