Naman Pranamasana or Snail Pose

In this pose, you should strive to touch your forehead on your knees and lift your buttocks so the back muscles can stretch and the channels (nadis) around the spine and back can open. It helps keep the spine healthy. While holding the pose you engage and tone the abdominal muscles and bring awareness to the top of the head and brain.

This asana is best practiced after Sasankasana (Rabbit or hare pose).

Focus Point: Top of the head, neck, back, spine, hip, abdomen, knees and heels.
