How to Cobra Abdominal Stretch

Cobra Abdominal Stretch

To perform a cobra abdominal stretch, start by lying face-down on a mat with your hands placed flat under your shoulders.

Slowly press into your hands and straighten your arms, lifting your chest and head off the ground.

Keep your elbows close to your body and hold this position for a few seconds, breathing deeply.

Then, release back down to the starting position. Repeat several times.


It is important to perform the cobra pose carefully and gradually, avoiding any sudden movements that could cause pain or injury. If you experience discomfort during the stretch, stop and speak with a healthcare professional. Additionally, it is important to incorporate regular stretching into your overall exercise program to maintain flexibility and prevent injury.


The cobra abdominal stretch is a yoga pose that helps to stretch the muscles in the abdominal region, including the rectus abdominis, and the muscles in the lower back. It can help improve posture and flexibility, as well as alleviate back pain and stiffness.
