What is the technique of Chandrasana

It is better to start with your right leg first, then repeat the sequence with the left leg forward. Kneel on all fours, with toes pointing out behind your (1). Step your right leg forward, placing your foot between you hands, with toes pointing forward and heel placed in line with your bent knee (2). If your knee tends to sway onward, aim it into the center of your chest as you move into position. Your hands can rest flat on the floor or on your fingertips. Lunge forward into your left hip, feeling the stretch in this area. Draw your shoulder blades down as you reach forward with you head and extend your spine. Hold this position.

If you feel your balance is stable, straighten up your torso extending your spine upward. Place your hands wither on your right thing, or in line with the sternum in the Prayer Pose (3), hands touching or slightly away from the sternum. To recover, reverse the path taken into the position

 

Note: Chandrasana is categorized as a back bend since, in the advanced version, arms are extended to a paralled position alongside the head, and the spine is curved backward, head facing up.  

 

Timing : Hold static version for three to eight breaths.
