Back Sequence – Locust

Last week we focused on cobra pose, today we are going to work on another pose called locust. This pose helps strengthen your entire back body, also known as the posterior chain.

Locust
  • Locust Pose
  • Lie completely flat on your stomach, resting forehead on your mat extending your legs straight behind you with the tops of your feet also on your mat. 
  • Arms are down at your sides, palms facing up.
  • As you inhale, raise your head to look forward and as you exhale lift your chest and arms off the floor. Feel your collarbones widen.
  • And lift your legs up toward the ceiling squeezing your glutes and zippering the feet together. 
  • Then release.

How does your back feel now, after locust pose?
