How To Correctly Execute Camel Pose For All Levels of Expertise


Hi, I’m Melanie from Melanie Schorr Yoga and
today, we’re going to be working on camel pose. So when you do camel pose, you’re going to
come up onto your knees. You want to make sure that your knees are
a little bit wider than your hips, but you’re actually going to do this at the top of your
mat so bring your knees a little bit wider than your hips. Make sure your feet are in line with the rest
of your legs, so not too far in and not too far out. Everything should be in line. For this pose, you’re going to be pushing
through your legs so that you don’t take it in your back. You take all the pressure in your legs. So you put your hands to your hips, you’re
going to breathe in, open up your chest, gently throw your head back. You’re going to breathe out, push forward
as far as you can using the muscles in your legs, and then slowly bend as far as you can. If you can touch your heels, touch your heels. But again, you don’t want to go like this. You’re going to push forward as far as you
can so your back doesn’t take the pressure. Your legs take all of the pressure. Then you’re going to breathe in and come up
and breathe out. You can go to child’s pose and rest. If this hurts your knees, you can roll up
the mat and you can put your knees like this when you do it so it takes the pressure off
of your knees. Thank you for watching and I hope you enjoy
doing camel pose at home.
