Bitilasana and marjaryasana are often paired together in cat-cow pose. Marjaryasana is performed on an inhale and bitilasana is performed on the exhale. This can be repeated up to 10 times.
The mental benefits of practicing bitilasana include:
- Relaxes the mind
- Relieves stress
- Aids in achieving emotional balance
- Promotes mind-body coordination
- Sharpens the practitioner's focus
Additionally, bitilasana stimulates anahata, the heart chakra. This chakra is responsible for energy flow and blood circulation. The heart chakra governs traits such as love and trust.
