Anahatasana is a heart-opening yoga pose that energizes the whole body. The name is derived from the Sanskrit, anahata, meaning “heart,” and asana, meaning “pose.”
To enter the pose, begin in table pose. Walk the hands forward until the chest reaches the floor. Keep the hips above the knees and place the forehead on the floor. Remain in the pose for one minute.
Anahatasana may also be referred to as heart chakra pose in English.
