Ardha Kati Chakrāsana

Ardha means half. Kati means waist. Charka means wheel. In this posture we form a half wheel with our waist hence this name.


  1. Stand in Tāḍāsana.
  2. Slowly raise your right hand vertically above our head while breathing in. Stretch the hand further with full inhalation.
  3. Now slowly bend your body towards left side, while exhaling. Left hand should be hanging freely.
  4. Maintain normal breathing in the final posture. Maintain the posture for about 30 seconds.
  5. While inhaling come up and with exhalation slowly bring down the right hand down.
  6. Repeat the same on the other side.


Pull the body up from the waist before and after going into the pose. Do not allow the trunk to tilt front or back. Bend laterally.


  1. Elasticity of lateral region increases.
  2. Lateral thoracic muscles are stretched and blood supply to them increases.
  3. Hip joints become flexible and excess fat around the waist reduces.
  4. Relieves from back pain, constipation and good for flat foot.
