Gomukhasana (“Cow Face Pose”), is one of the best shoulder and hip openers around!
It stretches the muscles of the upper back, upper arms, chest, hips, and thighs and stimulates digestion and elimination. It is a key pose for opening the hips.
Hips are known to store a lot of our stress, anxiety and fear. Sit in this pose for several minutes while concentrating on your breath and it will release these deep muscles and lift the spine, which aids in improving posture.
Improving your posture can improve your quality of life by improving the health of your spine and central nervous system. Try this pose at home, or learn more about it and other healthy postures in the online Senioryoga.com Certification program.
