Ardha Mandalasana or Half Circle Pose
Ardha Mandalasana is an available side extending stance. The name originates from the Sanskrit, Ardha, signifying “half,” mandala, signifying “circle,” and asana, signifying “represent.” The name alludes to the semi-roundabout shape framed by the leg, middle and arm in the stance.
In Ardha Mandalasana, the left leg is in a stooping position while the privilege reaches out to the side with the foot grounded and toes looking ahead. The left-hand contacts the ground to one side and the correct arm reaches up and over the head, with the palm moved in the direction of the ground.
