Sukhasana means the ‘Comfortable posture’. This is the easiest of all asanas. You can even commence a yogic asana session by sitting in this ‘Sukha’ or pleasant position. It is actually a cross-legged sitting position where you are comfortable. Your body remains at ease and in a static posture in this asana.

Methodology of Sukhasana Yoga

  • Sit down on the floor over your exercise mat.
  • Keep the back erect.
  • Loosely stretch out the legs in front of you.
  • Fold the left leg.
  • Draw in the foot towards the body.
  • Raise the left knee.
  • Slide the left foot under the right thigh.
  • Tilt up the left sole.
  • The left sole should be touching the back of the right thigh beside its knee.
  • Do the same with the right leg.
  • Similarly draw in the right foot towards your body.
  • Raise the left knee.
  • Slide the right foot under the left calf.
  • Tilt up the right sole.
  • Ensure that the edge of the right foot supports the left shin.
  • At this juncture, the legs would be loosely crossed at the ankles.
  • Now, you can also adjust the position of the legs with the hands.
  • Assume the position that is most comfortable to you.
  • Rest your hands on the knees.
  • Keep your back, head and neck erect during this posture.
  • You can stay put in this position as long as you wish.
  • While concluding the first session of this asana, first slowly stretch in front the right leg.
  • Then, stretch in front the left leg.
  • Both the legs should be lying in front of you in a parallel position next to each other.
  • After that you can repeat the asana interchanging the positions of the right and the left legs.
