Locust Pose or Salabhasana is a spine strengthening posture performed lying face down on the belly in the prone position. It is similar to an exercise often called the “Superman”, although in the traditional variation, the arms are kept at the sides instead of reaching forward like Superman.
This posture is a great warm-up exercise for more advanced backbends such as Bow and Wheel Pose.
Locust Pose is best performed at the beginning of a backbending sequence to ensure the spine is adequately prepared.
