Camel Pose is a backbend that stretches the whole front of the body. It is performed on the knees and is often used as preparation for deeper backbends.
• Stretches the entire front of the body, the ankles, thighs and groins
• Abdomen and chest, and throat
• Stretches the deep hip flexors (psoas)
• Strengthens back muscles
• Improves posture
• Stimulates the organs of the abdomen and neck
• Practitioners with knee, neck, spine, ankle, wrist, and ankle injuries have to avoid this pose, as all the above-said joints are active in this pose. Also, people who have undergone knee, hip, and spinal surgeries need to avoid this pose to avoid strain and further damage.
• Practitioners who lack body-breath connections should avoid this pose. The right alignment of the knees, feet, and then the breath awareness to take the backbend is very much needed. Without this coordination, they may jerk their lower back and knee joints. Similarly, even releasing the pose is gentle with body awareness. Yoga teachers need first to enlighten the students about this concept.
• Yoga teachers need to understand that this Camel Pose (Ustrasana) has to be used as therapy for digestive, reproductive ailments or for back strengthening only on fit students who have strong bones, joints, and musculoskeletal systems. Students with weak bodies or senior citizens cannot be put at risk by using this pose as therapy.
