Description:
Salabhasana, Shalabhasana (; IAST: Śalabhāsana), Locust Pose, or Grasshopper Pose. is an asana.

Etymology

The name comes from the Sanskrit words salaba or shalabha (शलभ, Śalabha) meaning "locust", and asana (आसन) meaning "posture" or "seat".

Description

It is a form of back bend, or spine stretch, using the strength of the upper and middle back to lift the weight of the legs as high as possible from a starting position face down on the floor. Most people find Salabhasana to be a very "strong" i.e. difficult and challenging posture to practice, and as such it not only improves flexibility and coordination, but also has strength and stamina benefits.

Cautions

Beginners may find that their shoulder and elbow flexibility is not sufficient to allow them to get the hands palm down right underneath the body, or that it is quite uncomfortable or even slightly painful to be in that position.

Variations

In the Bikram style of yoga, the posture referred to as Salabhasana has three stages which follow one after the other. The posture of the same name in the Astanga style of yoga corresponds to stage three of the Bikram style posture.
