October – Pose of the Month: Easy Pose (Sukhasana)

October – Pose of the Month: Easy Pose (Sukhasana)

Begin in a comfortable cross legged, seated position. Relax the feet so their outer edges rest comfortably on the floor and the inner arches settle just below the opposite shin. You’ll know you have the basic leg fold of Sukhasana when you look down and see a triangle, its three sides formed by the two thighs and the crossed shins. Don’t confuse this position with that of other classic seated postures in which the ankles are tucked in close to the sitting bones. In Sukhasana, there should be a comfortable gap between the feet and the pelvis. From Here start to root down into the sit bones, find length in the spine and soften the shoulders back and down away from the ears. Breathe here.
