Ardha Chakrasana

Ardha Chakrasana


half wheel pose
In the general form of the asana, the practitioner has hands and feet on the floor, and the abdomen arches up toward the sky. Wheel Pose may be entered from a supine position or through a less rigorous supine backbend, such as Setu Bandha Sarvangasana (Bridge Pose). Some advanced practitioners can move into Wheel Pose by "dropping back" from Tadasana (Mountain Pose), or by standing with the back to a wall, reaching arms overhead and walking hands down the wall toward the floor. Advanced practitioners may also follow wheel with any of its variations (listed below), or with other backbends, such as Dwi Pada Viparita Dandasana, or by pushing back up to stand in Tadasana.
Procedure:
"In this asana, the body is bent towards the back in circular pose, hence it is known as Chakrasana. The body can be bent at the waist forward or backward. While bending forward, the body does not appear in a circular pose. However in backward bends, the body looks like a circular pose. Hence, it is known as Chakrasana.
1. Start in supine position. Bend at the knees and place the feet close to the buttock, about hip-width apart.
2. Lift the arms up and have them place beneath the shoulders, with the fingers pointing to the shoulder.
3. Exhale while inhaling; lift the buttock, waist, lower and middle back off the ground. Exhale.
4. While inhaling, lift the shoulders up by pushing onto the ground with the palms. Lift up the buttock; waist and the whole back until the hands are straight at elbows and legs at the knees. Breathe normally in the final position. "
