Cow Face Yoga Pose

Are you intrigued? Do you want to know what the cow face yoga pose looks like? As you are probably aware, lots of yoga asanas were named based on certain resemblance with animals (the way they look or behave).

This particular asana and its name remains a slight mystery to me. I never do yoga in front of a mirror, but I highly doubt that my face looks like a cow face when I do it... at least I hope not...

Benefits of the Cow Face Yoga Asana

By practicing yoga, and in particular the cow face yoga pose (also known as Gomukhasana), you induce and improve an overall relaxing state. I recommend that you stay in this position for two minutes per side.

This should maximize the benefits, which are:

  • Reducing anxiety
  • Relieving back pain
  • Relieving stiffness and knots around the neck and shoulders
  • Improving posture
  • Stimulating kidneys
  • Improving breathing
  • And lots more.
