How to Do Locust Pose

Strike Yoga Pose: Locust A

We've talked about some extremely challenging variations of Locust pose such as Inverted Locust where you're balancing on your shoulders and chin, and Locust Scorpion where your feet are touching your head. Now let's take it down a notch and do plain old Locust pose. It's a great way to tone the muscles in the back of your body. It may look relaxing, but you'll definitely feel this one working, and it's a great complement to ab exercises.

Sanskrit Name: Salabhasana A
English Translation: Locust Pose
  • Lie down on a mat on your belly, with your legs together. Place your arms by your sides so your palms are facing up.
  • As you inhale, lift your legs, head, and upper body off the floor. Your hands remain on the floor for support.
  • As you breathe, try to relax your shoulders and the muscles in your booty. Extend the crown of your head away from your toes, lengthening as much as you can through your spine.
  • Stay for five breaths, and then release back to the mat.
