Above posture is Halasan (plow posture). Fetalt posture is child pose. Sarvangasan is done before. Halasan is a difficult posture. I am doing sarvangasan, childpose and viprit karni( similar to sarvangasan(Posture of all organs)If one can do halasan(plow posture) one's flexibility is good.I cannot do halasa(plow posture)

I have seen very few do the Halasan, I bend my knees around my ears and just sit all curled up upside down like that for about 30 minutes....I read years ago this is a very fine posture to do for deep meditation and found that too be true.  

I would suggest starting out slow if you plan on trying it.

If I remember correctly, this posture is called karna-pidasan. Karn  is ears and pida means pain. It may associated with ear pain or some such feature of ear and knee. I will google and find out or I will search it in my book.

I think, if you are doing this posture for meditaion, consult some one to confirm wheher you can meditate in this posture. you may google earpress posture or karnapidasan. Fetal posture is Balasa. Halasan is not fetal position. The posture is similar to a child in the womb.I.e Bala(child) san. That is also a very good posture for relaxing and digestine disorder.Good photos are given in the website.

Some times some posture harms us in the long run. I used to do vajrasan Rock posture, after meals regularly for 15 yrs. Now I have tightness in my feet. This can be because of doing vajrasan for a long period. when you are young you may not find the problem. I think probably you misread about the posture for meditation or the writer was at fault....There are 5 or 6 postures for meditation.IMPORTANT POINT ALWAYS KEEP YOUR SPINAL COLUMN STRAIGHT WHILE DOING MEDIATION. This is mentioned in every book. Main reason is the energy travel through the spinal column to the top of the head and goes down through the front midline of the body ending at the bottom of spine. if spine is twiested the energy may go anywhere.So stop this posture. you may sit one a chair if you cannot sit in lotus posture or cross legged. Some issues you are having might be because of this posture.I know I am no an expert. But this is simply a routine and we always asked to sit with a straight spinal column.Spinal column is S shaped. So you sit in a neutral position not elongated spine.Sorry for lot of reparation in this message. .
