Ardha Chandrasana

Half Moon Pose

Asana: Ardha Chandrasana/Half Moon Pose.  Begin from the long low side stretch of Utthita Parsvakonasana/Extended side Angle Pose.  As you lift up and out, over the R leg, balancing, with the R arm, parallel to that leg, feel yourself lifting into your dreams, opening your heart to the moon, to that feminine Self within that holds and nurtures your dream-space, no matter the disappointments.

Health Notes: When we lose our ability to dream, or to renew lost dreams, we lose our juice, and thus begins the slide away from life. Ardha Chandrasana, strengthens leg muscles and increases balance.
