The Meaning of Bhujang

Bhujang - Naga The Cobra

Bhujang Style takes its name from the well-known yoga pose, Bhujangasana, commonly referred to as Cobra pose.

The “Bhujanga” part of Bhujangasana means “snake” or “serpent” in Sanskrit, and indeed the pose looks like a cobra with it’s head up, although the actual word for Cobra in Sanskrit is Naga.

Bhujangasana is part of the Sun Salutation, and this asana is said to increase energy to the body, dispel disease, and awaken kundalini.
