PADMASANA: Group of Yoga


PADMASANA

                 In Sanskrit, Padmasana comes from the words Padma, or Lotus and Sana, or Seat or Throne. Padmasana is traditionally one of the best attitudes for Pranayama and Pratyahara, because it allows the body to sustain for a long time. As the body stabilizes, the mind becomes calm and provides a solid basis for concentration. Padmasana directs the flow of Prana from Mooladhara Chakra in the perineum to Sahasrara at the head of the head, intensifying the experience of meditation.

Awareness

                  In all the Asanas, either the left or the right leg may be placed uppermost. It is a matter of personal preference and depends on whichever is more comfortable. Ideally, the leg position should be alternated so that the balance on the both sides of the body is maintained.
Those who suffer from sciatica or weak or damaged knees should not perform these asanas until the elasticity of the knee is developed through the practice of asanas and initial meditation. Padmasana is not recommended during pregnancy because the circulation in the legs is reduced. The counter-meditation given for each asana should also be strictly observed.

Classification

  1. Yogamudrasana (Psychic union pose)
  2. Matsyasana (Fish pose)
  3. Gupta padmasana (Hidden lotus pose)
  4. Baddha padmasana (Locked lotus pose)
  5. Lolasana (Swinging pose)
  6. Kukkutasana (Cockerel pose)
  7. Garbhasana (Womb pose)
  8. Tolanguasana (Weighting scale pose)

Benefit

                  The Asana clear physical, emotional and mental blocks, help awaken the energy centres of body and induce tranquility. They increase the ability to sit in Padmasana for extended periods of time as required or advanced meditation practices, but should only be practiced by people who can already sit in Padmasana without the slightest difficulty or strain. It has a balancing influence on all Chakras.
