Why We Love


Padmasana, also known as Lotus Pose, is an important meditative pose in Ayurveda. It is a cross-legged yoga posture that helps to deepen meditation by calming the mind and alleviating physical ailments. To do Padmasana, you must first sit with your legs stretched out in front of you. Then, cross your legs and place your feet in the crooks of your hips, resembling the folded petals of the lotus flower. This position helps to improve flexibility and balance while strengthening the spine and improving posture.

The name “Padmasana” comes from two Sanskrit words – “padma” meaning lotus and “asana” meaning pose. The pose is also known by other names such as Tulasana (balance pose) or Utthita Padmasana (raised lotus pose).

Padmasana has many benefits for both physical and mental health. Physically, it helps to improve flexibility, balance, posture, and strength in the spine. It can also help to reduce stress levels and improve concentration. Mentally, it can help to reduce anxiety and depression while promoting relaxation and inner peace.
