8 – The Easy Posture
In a seated position, hold your back straight and cross your legs. Then place each foot under the opposite knee and bring your legs together towards your chest. Place your hands flat on your knees, then, while breathing deeply, look away with a gentle gaze. Stay like this for one minute before changing the crossing of your legs.
This posture promotes inner calm, relaxes the hips and spine and increases serenity. It also eliminates anxiety and relieves physical and moral exhaustion.
The practice of yoga is not recommended during pregnancy, menstruation and after surgery. Elderly people or people suffering from joint problems should consult a doctor before starting yoga.
