One of the most important benefits of kandasana is its power to address sexual disorders. It increases sperm count and cures impotency. Practicing kandasana also stimulates the organs, including the kidneys and bladder, as well as promotes mental calmness.
In spiritual practice, kandasana activates the muladhara (root) chakra. Muladhara is associated with health, passion, survival and progress. Energizing this chakra helps the practitioner stay connected with themselves and the world. It also maintains the function of the lower part of the body.
