Yoga Postures Lying on Stomach


Cobra Posture

Superman Posture

Locust Posture

Bow Posture

Cobra Posture

This asana resembles a serpent with its hood raised.

Benefits: tones the abdomen, strengthens the entire back and shoulders, improves blood circulation, reduces fatigue and stress.

Superman Posture

The Superman Pose is similar to a flying superman high in the air. This posture is particularly helpful in strengthening your lower back muscles. Also works at the mind level – when you take off, you can’t but stay in the present moment. Even if you want to, you can’t think about any problem.

Can be a good workout for the abs and stomach. Improves blood circulation
