Ardha Usthrasana (half camel pose) is a practice for awakening anahata charka, the heart chakra. Anahata is the seat of our spiritual-based emotions of love, compassion, and understanding. By activating anahata the practitioner connects to the interdependent design of the universe.
Ardha Usthrasana is also used therapeutically to relieve constipation, indigestion, reproductive disorders like infertility, menstrual disorders, and menopausal symptoms. Also strengthens and stretches spinal column, improving the overall health of the spine and relieving mild cases of backache and pain.
