A traditional camel pose can be pretty intense, especially if you’re not used to stretching the front body. Here is a simpler variation that will help stretch the front of the hips, the thigh muscles, and chest while strengthening the muscles in the back.
This variation can be done at the end of a long day of clinical dentistry to help “undo” what dentistry did to the body all day.
Sit on your heels.
Lean back onto your hands, keeping the chest lifted. Point your fingers either towards or away from your body.
Lift your buttocks off the ground as high as possible as you press the hips and thighs forwards.
Stay for 5-7 breaths.
Let me know if you try this.
