P for "Padmasana"

This blog post is written as part of A to Z Challenge. This involves the challenge of a blog post on a topic starting with an alphabet on each day through the entire month of April excluding Sundays starting from A to Z. My simple posts will be themed after Yoga postures with my own creations as images. 

Padmasana (Lotus pose) opens the hips, stretches the ankles and knees. One of the ideal pose for meditation and breathing practices while it helps in increasing awareness and concentration. While it helps in keeping up an erect spine, it eases menstrual discomfort as well. 

Read my earlier post on O for Open Chest.

Disclaimer: Yoga creates simple to complex impacts on the physical body. Make sure you consult your doctor and start the practice with a trained teacher.
