Salambha Bhujangasana

Yoga Poses

Yoga Pose for Day 15 – Sphinx Pose (Salamba Bhujangasana)

Sphinx Pose can be performed as a counter pose to Child Pose. Just like Child Pose is a baby’s lying position, Sphinx Pose resembles a baby holding the weight of its upper body in both hands while lying. The term ‘salambha’ in Sanskrit means ‘support’, ‘bhujanga’ means ‘snake’. This is generally considered as a half striking pose of a snake.
