Padmasana ~ Lotus
Padma : Lotus
Remember this is a two-sided pose! (Practice with each leg on top.)
Padmasana can be considered the end-all-be-all of yoga. We practice Hatha yoga, the physical poses, in order to be able to sit in stillness comfortably for long periods of time. Sitting in Padmasana, or a version thereof, daily will undoubtedly help you to "Figure out your service on this planet. Figure out how that service nourishes the earth and go and do that." –– Elena Brower. Of course, sitting in any comfortable position will do.
