The Asana of February - CAMEL POSE - Ushtra Asana

For me, this pose can lead to feelings of lightness and expansion, as if I have made a little more room inside for self-love and compassion. It encompasses the internal beauty that is revealed as we fully surrender and open our hearts.


  • Opening up the chest cavity - the heart space

  • Increases the lung capacity by expanding the rib cage

  • Gives good interior stretch from knee to neck

  • Promoting lymph drainage

  • Slimming the thighs, waistline and hips

  • Strengthens the arms, shoulders, knees & thighs

  • With gravity pull, blood circulation is boosted in head and hence, sensory organs are activated and helps curing hair problems

  • Activating the thyroid plexus

  • Massages the kidneys & bladder and gives simultaneous stretch and contraction to posterior and anterior sides of the body


  • Increases blood supply to the brain and increases memory, concentration

  • Reduces stress & anxiety

  • Helps in case of insomnia, nightmares, disturbed sleep, depression, tension headaches

  • Regulates the functioning of the pituitary, pineal, thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands


  • Increases the flow of prana to brain and spine
