Balancing stick posture is a full spine stress that is excellent for the heart. It perfects control and balance by improving the physical, psychological, and mental powers. As one of the best postures in the series for bad posture, it also provides many of the same benefits for the legs as standing head to knee pose.
Benefits:

Balancing Stick (Tuladandasana) gets broken down nicely in the image above. Part of Bikram Yoga’s Standing Series, this posture provides the following benefits:

^ Increases cardiovascular circulation, especially to the heart blood vessels
^ May help to clear blocked arteries
^ May help prevent future cardiac problems
^ Relieves stress from the spine
^ Good for varicose veins
^ Builds strength in the legs
^ Exercises the pancreas, spleen, liver, nervous and circulatory system
^ The forward tilt of your torso sends high-speed blood pouring into the heart, especially 
   the neglected region, cleaning out the veins and all the arteries and strengthening the heart
   muscle.
^ The same rejuvenating flood rushes into the brain, as well.
^ It strengthens your powers of concentration.

Tips for Balancing Stick Pose:
^ Keep both knees locked and stomach in
^ Point the toes of the leg that is stretched toward the back wall
^ Remember to “look for your front foot in the mirror”
^ Keep the arms with the ears. No Gap.
“Pull yourself apart in opposite directions like a natural human tug of war”
