Balancing Stick Posture Tutorials

Tuladandasana (Sanskrit)


  • The forward tilt of your torso sends high-speed blood pouring into the heart, especially the neglected region, cleaning out the veins and all the arteries, strengthening the heart muscle.
  • The same rejuvenating flood rushes into the brain as well.
  • It strengthens your powers of concentration.
