Halasana or Plow Pose improves the tone and strength of muscles of the back, abdomen, and legs. It massages the digestive organs, boosts digestion, and reduces belly fat. Practicing this asana regularly can help calm the nervous system, reduce stress, and help control high blood pressure. It stimulates the thyroid gland and strengthens the immune system.
