hello! Can anyone tell me the sanskrit name for snail pose?

Halasana (Plow pose) came up with a simple Google search.

I had never heard of the Snail pose before. It seems that Snail is the variation of Halasana within Yin Yoga. I know of Yin Yoga only by name. There might be more than just a name difference between these 2 postures, so it is best to find instructions for both rather than simply comparing them through pictures.

The snail pose I know is nothing like plow (halasana). You are on your knees, then you come forward onto the chest and chin with hands on the floor. Buttocks in the air and back arched. The complete iyengar advanced version is to lift the knees off the floor. This feels near impossible for me although I have seen it being done! Sound familiar?
