Where do you focus, while up in the Brahmacharyasana

Drishti is everything for an advanced student .. that means a point of focus which introverts the mind and shuts down its extroversion. In Brahmacharyasana, the point of focus is the mooladhara chakra (root chakra) or the pelvic region. Or the navel center, the manipura chakra.

I just found out an interesting benefit of this pose, for women: rectifies uterus prolapse, which means it tightens the abdomen. Wow! How much there is to learn, in yoga.

Swami Satyanandaji (from whose book I accessed the above info) also says that it tones the abdomen and induces the pelvic lock and the vajroli mudra automatically.
