Yoga Pose of the Week: Plow Pose (Halasana)

I get into this pose by starting off in Bridge Pose (with my hips on the ground) and then pressing into my palms as I engage my core muscles and swing my hips up and over my shoulders. Your knees can stay bent at this point or you can begin to straighten your legs as your toes come closer to the ground. You can always place a block behind you and rest your feet on the block. To come out of the pose, press your hands into your lower back for support and then slowly lower your spine all the way onto the mat. Note: Do this slowly and gently. Do not strain your neck or push it into the ground. Benefits: -Calms the brain & reduces stress and fatigue -Strengthens & opens the neck, shoulders, abs, & back -Stimulates the abdominal organs and the thyroid gland -Stretches the shoulders and spine -Therapeutic for backache, headache, infertility, & insomnia
