The answer is yoga. There are many asanas inside yoga, which refreshes the body along with curing the disease.

One of them is gomukhasana. This poses cures thousands of diseases and makes our body and mind feel fresh.

In Today's Guide, I will teach Gomukhasana steps benefits, and precautions in detail.

Meaning of Gomukhasana-

English meaning- Cow Face Pose

Sanskrit Meaning- Go Mukh Asana

Hindi Meaning- Gaay chehera asana

In English, gomukhasana is also known as cow face yoga.

In the Sanskrit language, it is composed of 3 words 

First            Go-       Cow

Second        Mukh-   Face

Third           Asana-   Pose

When we combine these three words then it becomes Cow face yoga.

In this posture, our body and face look like a cow that's why its name became gomukhasana in Sanskrit and cow face yoga in English.
