In addition to its physical benefits, tuladandasana improves memory, concentration and energy, as well as reduces anxiety and calms the mind.
Traditionally, tuladandasana is believed to stimulate the sahasrara (crown) chakra, thereby providing a connection to the universe and a oneness with the Divine. Activating this chakra brings ego-free serenity, inner peace and joy.
This asana is also part of a series of standing poses in Bikram yoga. In a common variation of the hand position, the fingers are interlaced, then the index fingers are extended forward as if pointing ahead.
