Ardha Mandalasana ~ Means half-circle in Sanskrit. The circle represents the Cosmos metaphysically and symbolically. The closest circle is the center of our psyche or consciousness. This pose opens the lower ribs and facilitates deep breath. It also activates the thymus gland, stimulating the immune system. This pose should be avoided by the yogi who has knee injury.
