Exercise-45: Ardha padamasana (the half lotus pose)

  • Sit with feet stretched in front of the body.
  • Fold left leg and place left foot beside the right thigh.
  • Fold right leg and place right foot on top of the left thigh.
  • Keep back, neck and head straight.



Persons suffering from sciatica or sacral infections should avoid practicing this asana.
Same as for padamasana but at a reduced level.
This asana should be preferred to sukhasana since alternative placing of each foot in the elevated position will help prepare for padamasana and other classical meditative postures.



Meditative Postures are good for our mind
