One of my favourite quotes is, “Bend so that you don’t break!” This applies to inversions and backbends. Halasana or the Plough pose is challenging, but at the same time it is rejuevenating.
Halasana calms the mind, stimulates internal organs, activates the thyroid, stretches the shoulders and hamstrings. Besides, it improves the flexibility of the spine.
Vishuddhi chakra located at the pit of the throat is more often associated with communication, self expression, will power and choice. However, the actual sanskrit meaning of vishuddhi means deep purification. Being related to the higher mind it refers more to removing the subtle obstructions. As they prevent us from understanding and expressing our deepest feelings and personal truth.
Stretch your back and hamstrings.
We need to be careful while practicing this asana. But, it is super relaxing and refreshing. Love it, especially on my low days. 🙂
