Lotus pose – Padmasanam
What does the lotus pose mean?
The lord Parameswaran, the creator of the world, is in this yoga pose. You can sit on the yoga mat by putting your left leg on the right thigh and right leg on left thigh. It is necessary to touch the lower abdomen with the heel. The fingers should be in the chin mudra. Also, your eyes should be looking into the tip of your nose.
For yoga beginners, it looks like not easy. It is very difficult for those who travel in a motorized car on a daily basis and who eat their food by sitting on the chair. Those who are slightly obese may find this yoga posture difficult. But this pose can do by practising every day.
How do you practice lotus pose?
Those who are doing the Padmaashana (Lotus pose) should draw their breaths steadily. The mind can meditate on the mantra of “Om” Achcharam or “Shivaya Namaha”.
How long can you sit in the lotus position?
Hold for about a minute, or maybe during your meditation or breathing exercises. Release the pose by straitening both legs on the floor. Also, take rest in Savasana for a short time.
