Practicing anahatasana improves posture, expands the chest, supports heart and lung function and promotes circulation.
Physical benefits aside, anahatasana offers amazing mental benefits. It promotes the "let go" attitude, develops compassion, promotes harmony, elevates the mood and helps to achieve a sense of inner calm.
Anahatasana stimulates the anahata chakra. A balanced anahata chakra promotes one's mind to a higher state where selfless love reigns supreme.
