Halasana: Do this asana slowly and slowly. Do not stretch your neck too much. Help your back with your shoulders and bring your shoulders near your ears. Halasan should be no shock when you bring your body back.

Halasana method

  1. Lie on your back on the yoga mat.
  2. Keep your hands close to the body. The palms will stay on the ground.
  3. Breathing inward, lift the legs upwards.
  4. The legs will make a 90-degree angle from the waist. The pressure will remain on the abdominal muscles.

Benefits of Halasana

Stiffness in the spine is a sign of aging. The spine is made flexible by the Halasana. The symptoms of aging do not come quickly by protecting the health of the spinal cord. Regular practice of Halasana removes indigestion, constipation, hemorrhoids, underdevelopment of thyroid, angioedema, premature aging, asthma, phlegm, blood disorders, etc. The headache is relieved. The ganglion becomes pure. The body becomes strong and stunning. If the liver and spleen are enlarged, then they fall into normalcy from the Halasana. Kundalini becomes upward due to the addition of fire in the form of Udaan by raising Apanavayu. The Purely chakra is activated.
