Ardha Chandrasana: Ardha means half and Chandrasana means posture similar to the moon. While doing this asana, the position of the body becomes similar to that of the half-moon, hence it is called half moon. The position of this asana is also made of triangles, this can also be called trikonasana because there is no significant difference between the two. Ardha Chandrasana is done by standing.
Ardha Chandrasana method

- Then keep both feet approximately one and one-half fit away.
- Keep the spine straight.
- Now raise the right hand and bring it parallel to the shoulder, then turn the palm towards the sky. Then lift the said hand and close the ear. During this time, keep in mind that the left hand remains close to your waist.
- Now, while keeping the right hand above the ear and adjoining the head, keep learning from the waist to the left. During this time, your left hand will automatically slide down. Keep in mind that the palm of the left hand should not be removed from the left leg.
- As much as you can, bend to the left and then stay in this semilunar position for 30-40 seconds.
- To come back, slowly stand straight again. Then bring the arm adjacent to the ear and head parallel to the shoulder again. Then with the palm facing the ground, close the said hand with the waist.
- This is the first frequency of Ardha Chandrasana done by the right-handed left, now do the same asana with the left hand while bending to the right and then come back to a state of rest. Doing the above posture 4 to 5 times will benefit.
