'Ardha’ means half, ‘Hala’ means plough and asana means posture.
This posture is known as Ardha Halāsana because in its final position, the body resembles half the shape of an Indian plough.
Place your blanket or your yoga mat on the surface.
This āsana brings stability in the body.
Those who have undergone abdominal surgery should avoid this āsana for 4-5 months.
