Padmasana -Lotus Pose Benefits and Steps

Padmasana or Lotus Pose is the most important of the four meditation asanas (Sukhasana, Swastikasana, and Siddhasana).

Just as the lotus remains in water but above the water level, the practitioner of this asana, despite living in this world, stains the capacity for detachment from it.


Many ancillary practices can be performed prior to practicing this asana. Such as

Number 1 – Stretch the legs in front fingers, toes, and heels close to each other. Move them in a circle, forward and backward, left and right (clockwise and anticlockwise).

Number two – Cycling with one leg supported by crossed fingers on both hands Rep with the opposite leg.

Number 3 – Place the right foot’s ankle on the left knee. With both hands, catch the right knee. Maintain a straight spine. Continue touching the earth and ribs in turns. Repeat this exercise with the other knee.
The number 4 – Fold your right leg and place your right hand below your right knee and your left hand below your right ankle. Raise the leg and swing it to the left and right. In this position, the left leg will remain straight. Rep with the other leg.

There are several other asanas that can help Padmasana be performed more easily and by practicing them, the lower region of the body becomes more elastic.

Padmasana, Sukhasana, Siddhasana and Swastikasana are important part of sitting postures in Yoga.
