Benefits of Classical Sitting Positions in Yoga

The Benefits of the Classical Sitting Poses In Yoga

Hello all,

What are you doing? We are almost halfway through November and many of us already have new year resolutions in mind. Many of us today are aiming for physical and mental health, so we’re considering our New Year resolutions to be fit. It isn’t easy, we all know. Let’s see how we can do it.

There are many options, but Yoga is the most popular. Yoga is now a regular part of our lives.

Yoga is considered the sister science to Ayurveda. Ayurveda’s main focus is on food, nutrition, and medicine. Yoga, however, focuses on the combination and awareness of proper breathing.

Some prefer the asanas, while others stick with pranayam. Yoga is being praised by the entire world, not just India. When I see foreigners teaching yoga, I feel proud to be from the country that gave birth to this science. Today I want to talk about the benefits of sitting postures in yoga.

You can do four classic sitting positions.


Let me explain.

Sukhasana (Comfortable pose)

Indians are accustomed to this sitting position. This pose is something we have been doing since childhood. Simply place your legs cross-wise on the floor mat. This position is great for pranayam or meditation.

Sukhasana’s Benefits (Comfortable Pose)

It relieves mental and physical exhaustion.

This pose allows one to meditate in peace.

Benefits of Padmasana (Lotus pose).

This pose improves blood circulation and digestion. The base of the spine is where you will find kundalini, a dormant energy. It can be awakened by meditation and yoga.

After examining all the benefits, I want to emphasize that it is important to do the asanas correctly in order to reap the full benefits. Yogasanas are better done with a guide or instructor.
