Meditation Posture

Full Lotus Posture

Benefits:

Provides the classical sitting position for meditation during longer periods of time without bodily movement

Promotes very great elasticity of the ankles, knees, and legs because of the position which is required.

Note: The full lotus position is an advanced yoga position that requires considerable amount of practice to master. If you cannot do half lotus position, you will not be able to do full lotus position.

How To Do Full Lotus?

  1. In a sitting position, stretch your legs straight out before you.
  2. Bend your right leg at the knee and bring it toward you so that you can take hold of your right foot with both hands.
  3. Place your right foot on top of your left thigh. The right foot should be brought toward you as far as is possible so that eventually the right foot is touching the groin. In order to now complete the posture successfully, the right knee will have to rest on the floor.
  4. Bend your left leg at the knee and bring it toward you so that you can take hold of your left foot with both hands.
  5. Place your left foot on top of your right thigh. The left foot should be brought in as far as possible so that eventually the left heel will also touch the groin. Both knees should eventually rest on the floor. Sit in this position as long as you want.
  6. When your legs grow tired, stretch them straight out before you and gently massage your knees. Then repeat the position by reversing the legs so that the left leg is drawn in first and the right leg is on top.
