Gomukhasana

Stretches your butt (aka Gluteus Maximius, Minimus, and Medius) which helps relieve tightness in your hips and lower back pain.

Opens your shoulders and increases the range of motion for your shoulder joint.

Stretches the chest.

Stretches triceps and strengthens biceps.

Stretches quads (thighs).

Gomukhasana is one of the few poses we do in yoga where we internally rotate the arm/shoulder. This action stretches your external rotators, which are more commonly used in yoga, and prepares them for work in other poses.

Because your hands press into your back in this pose it encourages proper alignment of your spine and helps strengthen your back.

Stretches the lattisimus dorsi (“lats”) on the side with the raised elbow.
