Sphinx is no myth

Sphinx pose as a yoga asana or posture is a gentle back bend. Practicing this pose helps strengthen the spine and stimulate the abdominal organs. It expands and stretches the chest, shoulders, and lungs. Sphinx helps improve blood circulation while relieving the body of stress. Gentle twists and quad stretches can be added and this posture can be taken deeper into other yoga poses as well like cobra pose and raised cobra. Sphinx helps firm up the buttocks too!

  1. It would be helpful if you added an image or drawing of the pose. Has anyone else suggested it?

    1. Hi Margarida-There is an image of a sphinx statue in the post, which is essentially the pose. I can show you the pose on the mat on Friday before class.
