Yoga Half Moon Standing Pose Tips : Yoga Half Moon Pose Benefits


So why should we practice Ardha Chandrasana,
half moon? Well, we also get all the benefits from the first standing pose, Tadasana or
mountain pose, which I mentioned before; balance, groundedness, strength in the legs, lengthening
of the spine, opening of the chest for breathing. But in addition to that, because we’re arching
the spine laterally on both sides of the body, we’re opening up those spaces between the
vertebrae on each side. We’re also lengthening the arms and strengthening the arms, particularly
if we’re coming into temple posture, but even when we do this variation. We’re also getting
a good massage for the organs and a squeeze to the organs to the side that we’ve arched
to. So everything on the right side when we’re in the pose arching to the right gets a squeeze,
and toxins are pressed out so that when you come back to mountain pose, fresh oxygenated
blood can flow into the organs. Same thing on the left. And as you breathe, you’re also
getting a good massage to your heart and lungs. So there are many benefits to Ardha Chandrasana,
half moon.
