Ahh, this pose feels oh-so-good. The locust pose is helpful in strengthening the spine, the gluteus maximus, triceps and hamstrings. This move is a great all-over stretch, especially for the back and chest, that is also beneficial in improving your posture and relieving stress.
We challenge you to perform the locust pose and hold it for a total of 8-10 breaths.
Repeat the pose three times in a sequence. We also recommend adding this pose to your routine weekly to reap the benefits of this nice, elongating stretch.
