The Sanskrit name for Hare Pose is Shashankasana. The meaning of ‘Shashank’ is moon. Shashank in itself is made up of two words, ‘shash’ meaning ‘hare’ and ‘ank’ meaning ‘lap’. The Shashankasana Pose is said to benefit the practitioner by helping in calming the nerves and providing a feeling of tranquility. The Shashankasana looks similar to a sitting hare, from which it derives its name.
