Halasana is also known as the Plow pose.
The name comes from the Sanskrit words hala meaning “plough” and asana meaning “posture”.
Halasana, the pose is entered from Sarvangasana (shoulder stand), lowering the back slightly for balance, and moving the arms and legs over the head until the outstretched toes touch the ground and the fingertips, in a preparatory variant of the pose. The arms may then be moved to support the back into a more vertical position, giving a second variant pose. Finally, the arms may be stretched out on the ground away from the feet, giving the final pose in the shape of a traditional plough.
Steps for Halasana/Plow pose:-
1. Lie on your back. Join the legs together. Relax the whole body (Shavasana position).
2. Keep the palm flat on the ground. Keep breathing normally.
3. While exhaling press the palm on the ground and raise both the legs upwards straight then try to touch the ground just behind.
4. Breathe slowly and hold the posture for several minutes 30 seconds to one minute if you are a beginner. You can gradually increase the holding time.
5. Now slowly release the pose to return to Shavasana.
Repeat this 3-5 times.
