Halasana (Plough Pose)

Halasana

Halasana (Halāsana) = plough pose

Dṛṣṭi: nāsāgre = to the nose

Usually done from Shoulder Stand Posture (Salamba Sarvangasana).

From Shoulder Stand, exhale and lower the feet down to behind the head.

Place the tops of the feet on the floor and lengthen though the legs. You can keep the feet on a chair or off the chair as a easier variation to this also.

Inhale and lift the back up and keep it strong, and then interlink the fingers and place the arms along the floor.

Strengthen through the arms to keep the body structure safe.

Hold here for three to five breaths and then roll down gently, supporting your back with your hands as you do.

You can also move into Karna Pidasana from this posture if you prefer.
