Cow Face Pose

The Cow Face Pose, also known as Gomukhasana, is a yoga posture that promotes shoulder and hip flexibility. To practice this pose, start by sitting on the floor with your legs extended. Bend your knees and stack them, so one knee is on top of the other. Use your hands to help position your feet beside the hips. Inhale as you lift one arm overhead, and exhale as you bend the elbow and reach the hand behind your back. Simultaneously, slide your other arm underneath, aiming to clasp your fingers or hold onto a strap. This creates a bind between your hands, opening your shoulders and chest. Maintain an upright spine and gently press your sitting bones into the ground. Cow Face Pose stretches the shoulders, hips, and thighs while also improving posture and spinal alignment. As you hold the pose, breathe deeply, allowing the stretch to evolve with each breath. Remember to perform the pose on both sides to achieve balance. If clasping the hands is challenging, use a strap or hold onto a piece of clothing to bridge the gap between the hands.
