Ustrasana | Yoga per principianti | Yoga For Diabetes & Tips | About Yoga in Italian
Ustrasana is a very deep backward bend performed in a kneeling position. Many people find backbends difficult or challenging, because bending backwards is not an activity with which most are familiar.
After performing Ustrasana, the pulse rate will often have increased considerably, while the breathing should be deep and slow.
A deeper stretch can be achieved by separating the knees slightly wider at the outset. The “full expression” of camel varies widely between practitioners, with some finding it quite difficult to progress beyond a slight backward lean; at its deepest the head can be between the knees.
