The word yoga evokes many images but perhaps one of the most classic is that of a yogi meditating in Lotus Pose / Padmasana with a serene face, eyes closed and legs twisted like a pretzel. While many of us can’t fathom how anyone could sit like that without cringing, let alone find peace in Padmasana, we may still be curious.
The short discussion at the beginning of this class will explore Lotus Pose, the venerated meditation seat. Learn about the benefits of starting a journey toward Padmasana, as well some key safety guidelines for that practice.
The alignment-based yoga practice will include preparatory poses, tips on incorporating Padmasana prep into your regular yoga practice and assistance finding a comfortable meditation seat – participants may or may not sit in Lotus for the 10-minute meditation at the end of class.
This class is best suited for those with some yoga and/or meditation experience.
If you are curious and drawn to the image of a yogi in Lotus Pose, as I am, come get your journey started in an approachable way.
