Ardha Chandrasana



sanskrit: Ardha Chandrasana
translation: ardha = half, candra = glittering, shining, having the brilliancy or hue of light, moon
aka: Half Moon Pose
aka: Crescent Moon Pose
aka: Triangle with a leg lift (from Debbie)
...any others?




Interesting tid-bit: while researching Ardha Chandrasana, I found this variation (below), done in Bikram.

I practiced Bikram for about a year. Tough, but great for the body.

Is that really a variation? I think it's just another pose but with the same name. It kind of looks like a half moon right?

That "variation" looks like Urdhva Hastasana with a backbend.
