Maria D Good stretch on thighs nd even arms.
This is a very deep back bend which is performed in a kneeling position. As a stretch it opens the whole of the front of the body, including the hip flexors and pectoral muscles. The posture improves core strength, spinal, hip and shoulder flexibility and stamina.

Camel Pose Challenge rules
- Practicing Ustrasana can make many beginners who are new to yoga feel distinctly ill, with light headedness or nausea being quite common after-effects.However, this does usually improve with practice.
- Not all types of physical activity are suitable for everyone. Users take Challenges and training advice at their own personal risk.

Nana D Incoporated this into my stretch routine after my daily exercise. Some days it seems easier to do and other days can barely touch my feet. Anybody know the reason whuy this is so?
Suki N encouraged this.
Colleen O Thought this would be a great stetch after waking up really sore... turns out I'm not that flexible....
Cheeta L That felt really good, got the light headed feeling after the 30 seconds was up but enjoyed the stretch! I HAVE to incorporate more yoga into my life!
Amber Y Man, this looks easy but in reality it's difficult, you'll be dizzy the first time you do it.
Why not ask for some advice from other Challenge takers, or read some of the Challenge guides first?OK, I'll keep working at it!
