After relaxing in the Corpse Pose for few minutes, come up and sit in the Easy Pose, Sukhasana, for pranayama and the neck, shoulder and eye exercises. This asana is one of the classic meditative poses, which help to straighten the spine, slow the metabolism and still the mind.
If you’re used to sitting in chairs, Sukhasana can be quite challenging.
If you find that holding the pose is uncomfortable, place a folded blanket under the back of your buttocks. In order to stretch the leg muscles evenly, be sure to alternate which leg you place on top in the posture. When you are ready, substitute the Half Lotus or Lotus at this point.
HOW IT WORKS
sukhasana has patented leg support adjustements that you won’t find on any other chair. These controls allow for customized support and give tight hips an opportunity to relax and open. When it’s time for a break, the design of the sukhasana chair enables you to sit comfortably with feet on the floor. Seat height, forward tilt and back support are also adjustable.
