Cobra pose comes from the Sanskrit word “bhujangasana” which translates to “serpent’s posture.” It is a back-bending yoga pose that stretches the spine and strengthens the arms, abdomen, and chest. This pose has been around for thousands of years, with evidence of its practice in ancient cultures like Egypt, Greece, and China.
This pose is a yoga position that strengthens the spine, elongates the back of the thoracic region, and increases flexibility in the chest and neck. It is one type of āsana (or yogic pose). The name comes from its resemblance to an upright cobra rising up with a hood extended.
