Utpluti dandasana is one of the variations of danasana, a seated asana in which the back is straight, the legs are extended and the hips are at a 90-degree angle. All danasana variations are energizing, but the more advanced utpluti danasana is an important pose for conserving sexual energy for spiritual purposes.
Traditionally, this utpluti dandasana is thought to open the muladhara (root) chakra. Opening this chakra is associated with physical and emotional grounding, providing energy, inner stability and balance.
The asana also has the following benefits: improves circulation and digestion, increases mental focus, and improves sexual relations.
