Most people have heard about “lotus pose”. This may be due to its beautiful name and mysticism that comes from the lotus flower. This position could also be well known because of the physical challenge it poses. Whatever the reason, the “lotus pose” gives you tremendous stability and concentration.
This is one of the sitting poses you build up with time, and therefore should not be practiced by people with knee injuries. Beginners can start practicing “half lotus” or other variations.
This pose is done by sitting on the buttocks placing one foot on top of the opposite thigh with both legs, while keeping the spine straight. It is your choice which leg you put first.
