Open your chest and heart by practicing Camatkarasana-a magical and invigorating Yoga pose with a myriad of health benefits.

Camatkarasana derives its name from Sanskrit, where “Camatkara” means magic or surprise and “Asana” means seat or pose. This is a challenging pose that involves stretching, bending, and balancing. Not an easy-to-perform pose for beginners, however, can be mastered with intense practice and determination.
