“Bhujangasana, or Cobra pose (Sanskrit: भुजङ्गसन), is a hatha yoga posture. The name comes from the Sanskrit words bhujanga (snake, serpent) and asana (pose).
Bhujangasana may strengthen the spine stretch the chest, shoulders, and abdomen, firm the buttocks, and relieve stress and fatigue.
Traditional texts say that Bhujangasana increases body heat, destroys disease, and awakens kundalini. Bhujangasana is often followed by Salabhasana.” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bhujangasana)
