Posts Tagged ‘Great Sphinx of Giza’

Picture The Great Sphinx

Posted by terrepruitt on November 10, 2021

In 2014 I wrote a post about a list of favorite poses and mentioned how I would post further about them. Well, I was talking about additional posts with additional poses, but here I am in this post revisiting a post and an asana. This post along with the next few are here to add pictures to instructional posts.

I think of the Sphinx pose as a regal pose. Cats are regal and the Great Sphinx of Giza looks regal to me. I think of that 66 feet high, 240 feet high statue when I practice this pose. I try to elude that regalness.

Keeping the shoulders down and not sinking into the chest is the key.  This is a very achievable backbend for many.  I did a post on it Regal Pose.

Are you familiar with the Sphinx pose?
