(Half Wheel Posture)

Since the posture, while bending back in standing position appears to be half circle, it is known as Ardha Chakrasana.


1. Stand in Sama Stithi make one foot distance between both the legs
2. Put the palms on the buttocks and raise the chin up
3. Push the buttocks forward and bend back
4. Stay in that posture comfortably and gradually, slowly come back to Sama Stithi and relax


It gives strength to the spinal cord and relief to people suffering with low-back pain, sciatica etc., and straightens hunchback.
