Posture of the Week: Half-Moon

Posture of the Week: Half-Moon

Half-Moon pose gives quick energy and vitality; improves and strengthens every muscle in the body’s core, especially in the abdomen; increases the flexibility of the spine; corrects bad posture; promotes proper kidney function; and helps to cure enlargement of the liver and spleen. It increases the flexibility and strength of the rectus abdominus, latissmus dorsi, oblique, deltoid and trapezius muscles. Half-Moon also firms and trims the waistline, hips, abdomen, buttocks and thighs.

Posture Tips:

  • Remember that when you do the Half-Hoon pose your body is not warmed up yet. You might not be able to bend sideways as much as you would like, so don’t be discouraged.
  • Keep your leg muscles and torso as engaged as much as possible when you bend sideways.
  • Keep your tailbone tucked under slightly when bending backwards. You should feel a lift in the chest not just in the lower back.
