Locust :: Salabhasana

This pose requires an amazing combination of back strength and flexibility which I’m still working at developing. But this is such a beautiful pose to work with and watch it develop. And no matter what stage of learning you are in, the benefits of the pose are there as soon as you make that attempt to go into it. The Locust aids in digestion and helps to prevent constipation by massaging the internal organs and, in particular, the intestines. It can also be quite an intense stretch for the wrists and forearms. If you look carefully at the picture you can see the hand position underneath the weight of the body. The elbows should be as close together as possible. A strong and flexible back truly makes for a long and comfortable life.
