ardha bheka kapotasana is believed to open the svadisthana
(spleen/sacral), anahata (heart) and ajna (third eye) chakras.
Activating svadisthana through this asana stimulates
creativity, joy and pleasure. Opening anahata kindles love,
forgiveness and self-acceptance; while an active ajna is associated
with intuition, wisdom and imagination.
kapotasana prepares the yogi physically and mentally for more
challenging asanas in the kapotasana, rajakapotasana, and vamadevasana series. In addition to its physical benefits, ardha bheka kapotasana increases focus and concentration.
