|Posture:||Gomukha-asana - The Cow-face Pose|
|Translation:||Gomukha literally means "cow face" in Sanskit.|
|"Placing the right ankle on the left side and the left ankle on the right side, makes Gomukha-asana, having the appearance of a cow."
This posture stretches the arms, upper back, chest and the sides of the chest and abdomen. As the shoulder blades are stretched backward the lungs are expanded and as the abdominal muscles are lifted the stomach is toned. It helps to relieve neck strain, backache and tight shoulders. The hands, fingers and wrists are strengthened.
