Merudandasana is an intermediate seated asana that requires balance and flexibility. It improves balance, focus and concentration, opens the hips and back of the legs, stimulates the abdominal organs, improves digestion, strengthens the core muscles and back, improves overall flexibility, and stretches the spine.
Note: If you are a beginner, practise this asana under the guidance of a trained professional.
