Cobra Pose (Bhujangasana)

Back in February 2017, a 45-year-old Australian man fell into a hole full of water and got trapped there. As a result, he spent several hours in the hole with only his head above the water. The man remained in the Bhujangasana position until his neighbor rescued him. The victim of this incident praised yoga for saving his life.

Top 5 Yoga Poses That Can Save Your Life

Seated Forward Bend (Pashimottanasana)

If you have seen weight-lifting fails, you will understand why it’s beneficial to know the Pashimottanasana pose. By ensuring that your head is protected, this position can save you if something big and heavy instantly falls on you.

Squat Position (Malasana)

Malasana is famous for its constipation relief benefits. Many people believe that Elvis Pressley died because of complications caused by chronic constipation. Chronic constipation can throw off your heart rhythm. This can elevate your blood pressure and can cause heart arrhythmias.

Reclined Hero Pose (Supta Virasana)

If you trip or stumble, which will make your body start falling forward, the Supta Virasana pose can save you from landing on your face. Knowing this technique can be irreplaceable on icy days.

Four-Limbed Staff Pose (Chaturanga Dandasana)

If you didn’t manage to make the Supta Virasana pose when falling on your face, then perhaps the Chaturanga Dandasana position will save you. This pose will help you soften the impact on your hand and body at the moment of falling on your face. The Chaturanga Dandasana will also help you maintain a strong body, which will serve you well in many other difficult situations.
