Camel Pose Benefits


The camel posture benefits the spine and the front of the body by giving an extreme stretch. It mitigates spinal pain, reinforces the lower back, remedies adjusted shoulders, and invigorates the thyroid organ and kidneys. The camel posture isn’t to be rehearsed if hypertension, a herniated plate, or other lower back issues are available.
