|This is an expression of Sukhasana/Easy Pose |
without using any props or adopting modifications.
Throughout my "This is Yoga" posts, I will typically share the Sanskrit word for each pose and its English correlation.
Most commonly a yoga practice begins with the participants seated in Sukhasana or "Easy Pose". If a person finds Sukhasana not so easy to do or downright painful, props can be added and adjustments made to bring more ease and comfort to the pose.
Sukhasana/Easy Pose brings calmness and peace to the body. It stretches the knees and ankles and strengthens the spine while also opening up the groin area and hips.
This pose is contraindicated for people who have severe knee injury or pain; however, in the final picture I show how this pose can be done safely and pain free sitting on a bench or chair.
