camel // ustrasana
Camel pose, or Ustrasana, is a pose of opening and extension. Sitting on your heels in Hero's pose, with your toes tucked (or untucked for an extra challenge), send your hips forward while reaching behind you with either hand, holding onto your heels. Find extension and length through your spine as you send your head back without straining your neck. And shine through your belly and chest as you gain energy and stretch in this pose.
