Bhujangasana in English is also known as Cobra Mudra. It is made up of two words Bhujanga means a big snake and Asana means an asana, hence it is known as Cobra Mudra or Bhujangasana.

This is basically a back-bending posture. While practicing, a person looks like a big snake that's why it is named as cobra pose.

This pose relaxes the extra burden from your spine and also takes you to a level of mental peace.

It is one of the old poses and it has also come in the 7th posture of Suryanamaskar.
