In addition to its physical benefits, karnapidasana calms the mind, controls negative thoughts, and reduces stress and fatigue.
Traditionally, karnapidasana is believed to activate the visuddha, manipura and svadisthana chakras. Stimulating these chakras through the pose is believed to have the following benefits:
- Visuddha purifies not only the body, but the psyche and mind.
- Manipura controls vitality and the balance of energy.
- Svadisthana fosters inner acceptance and promote focus and productivity.
