Half-Moon Pose (Ardha Chandrasana)

In Sanskrit, Ardha-Half, Chandra-Moon, or Luminous. This sleek standing level mirrors the image of the half moon and therefore the name "half-moon pose" (Ardha Chandrasana). The half-moon reveals an ideal balance between the moon and the sun because this balances your body with the lateral extension of the leg and the body part. The Ardha Chandrasana, or the half-Moon pose, may be a nice yoga because it increases the satellite energies in your body.

Half-Moon Pose

Beginners’ Tip

If you have an issue touching the ground with your lower hand, support your hand on a block. Begin with the block at its highest height and, if your balance is steady and comfy, lower it down first to its middle height, and finally, if possible, to its lowest height.


NOTE: Before you start this, consult your doctor or an exercise professional about this pose. Don't try to do it alone.


Tip To Do -

1 - Start this pose in Utthita Trikonasana (Extended Triangle) with the left foot forward.
2 - Place your right hand on your hip and turn your head to face the ground.
3 - Bend your front leg and gradually shift your weight into your front foot.
4 - Reach your front hand a bit forward and place it on the mat or a block directly below your front shoulder. Move through your fingers to steady yourself.
5 - Raise your back leg until the thigh is parallel to the ground. Slowly flip your chest to face the right, twisting your body parts and hips. Reach your hand to the ceiling.
6 - Maintain your gaze on the ground or gradually bring it to your prime hand. Keep a small bend in your standing leg so you don’t stretch your knee.
7 - Exit in the same manner as you entered, and return to the Extended Triangle.


The Advantages of the Half Moon Pose
