When you sit in the Gomukhasana pose, the contortion of your knees resembles the face of a cow and the legs protruding from both the sides of the body looks likes its ears. Cow is gau and mukh is face in Sanskrit, hence it's called Gomukhasana, or a pose that resembles the face of a cow.
Regular practice of this asana benefits men, women, the young and the old alike. It is beneficial for low back pain, knee pain, sciatica and joint pain-problems that are common in winter.
You should avoid sliding the legs across each other too far if you are suffering from pain or injury in your knees or hips. People with shoulder injury should avoid this asana.
