Half-moon pose for focus and control

In Hatha yoga, half-moon pose (ardha chandrasana) is a way to gain focus as you work on balance, engage core muscles and lengthen the spine. 

Here's how you can do it at home:

1) Staring at the floor, place right palm directly under right shoulder (modifications such as blocks/wall are great props to use here) and bring left hand to the left hip. Roll the left hip up and back so the hips face the side wall.
2) Inhale finger tips to towards the ceiling. Turn the head to face the side wall and work on turning the whole torso to face the side wall. 
3) Breathe and hold for 3-5 breaths.
4) To release: exhale and slowly bring both hand back to the floor and step the left foot back.
