This posture is an intensified continuation of Virabhadrasana I.
The illustration conveys the harmony, balance, poise and power attained by practising this asana. It helps to contract and tone the abdomnal organs and makes the leg muscles more shapely and sturdy. It is recommended for runners, as it gives vigour and agility.
All the movements of this asana improve one's bearing and carriage. When we stand badly, by throwing the weight on the heels, we retard symmetrical growth and hamper spinal elasticity. Standing with the weight on the heels causes the stomach to protrude and lessens bodily and mental agility. This asana helps one to stand firmly on the soles of the feet, keeps the stomach muscles in and gives agility to the body and the mind.
