This pose is beautiful. It is among my favourite because it requires extreme focus, balance and « no mind », which is nothing else than the yogic state. The meaning of the pose is « flying horse pose with eagle arms ».  

The spiritual center is on swadhisthana chakra, which means the sacral chakra, the chakra of creative energy and inspiration. The pose itself strengthens leg muscles and knee joints.  It also reduces hyperactivity of the kidneys and diuresis.
