In a sequence, balancing bound angle may be practiced after easy pose, boat pose and bound angle pose.
Benefits of balancing bound angle include:
- Improves balance
- Opens the hip and groin
- Strengthens core muscles
- Strengthens the back of the body
- Improves balance and mental focus
- Stretches the legs and hips
- Increases self-confidence
As flexibility and stability increase, it is possible to move deeper into the pose by straightening the legs while lifted. The spine can also be slowly rounded, allowing the body to rock backward onto the mat and then up again, regaining balance. It can also be modified by practicing it with one leg at a time, keeping the other leg on the mat.
