Cobra is done multiple times per class in flow yoga as part of the vinyasa sequence of poses. While
a full cobra with straight arms offers a deeper backbend, you'll build more back strength by doing
low Cobras in which you lift your chest without pressing into your hands.
Root into your feet, lengthen out through the crown of the head and broaden through the collarbones as you lift the sternum. It's also key to anchor your pelvis to the floor before you lift up.
