How to do Halasana

  1. Lie on your back with your arms beside you, palms downwards.
  2. As you inhale, use your abdominal muscles to lift your feet off the floor, raising your legs vertically at a 90-degree angle.
  3. Continue to breathe normally and supporting your hips and back with your hands, lift them off the ground.
  4. Allow your legs to sweep in a 180-degree angle over your head till your toes touch the floor. Your back should be perpendicular to the floor. This may be difficult initially, but make an attempt for a few seconds.
  5. Hold this pose and let your body relax more and more with each steady breath.
  6. After about a minute (a few seconds for beginners) of resting in this pose, you may gently bring your legs down on exhalation.

Tips for Halasana

  • Do this asana slowly and gently. Ensure that you do not strain your neck or push it into the ground.
  • Support your back on the tops of your shoulders, lifting your shoulders a little towards your ears.
  • Avoid jerking your body, while bringing the legs down.

Suggested preparatory asanas/poses before Halasana

  • Poorva Halasana or the preliminary Halasana is a preparatory asana before you practice full Halasana pose. It is relatively easy to perform.
  • Shoulder Stand (Sarvangasana) is usually done before the Halasana. To do Sarvangasana, when you lift your legs and hips off the floor, instead of taking your legs 180 degrees over your head, stretch them upwards in the air, so that you come up high on your shoulders, supporting you back with your hands. Halasana goes hand-in-hand with Sarvangasana.
  • Bridge Pose (Setu Bandhasana) is another asana that can be done before Halasana.

Suggested follow-up asanas/poses after Halasana

  4. Stimulates the thyroid gland and strengthens the immune system.
  5. Helps women during menopause.

  • Ladies should avoid practicing Halasana during pregnancy and during the first two days of the menstrual cycle.
  • Consult a doctor before practicing Halasana if you have suffered from chronic diseases or spinal disorders in the recent past.

In the current season, the chances of falling sick rise sharply. It’s difficult for our body to keep the pathogens at bay when the immunity levels are down and people around us are sneezing and coughing. Though we cannot shun from being in contact with those who are ill, we can certainly work our way to strengthen our defense mechanism.

Antibiotics and other medicines do help the body recover from the disease but they don’t help improve the body’s immunity. Yoga, perhaps, is one of the most effective and time-tested natural immunity boosters that we can adopt for a healthier life. 

Let’s have a look at a few simple yoga poses that can help you put up a strong resistance:

  • Gently press your chest on the thighs.

  • Hold.

  • Gently come up and sit on the heels, uncurling vertebra by vertebra and relax.
