Siddhasana
 

What is Siddhasana?

Siddhasana is one of the most popular meditation postures. Siddha in Sanskrit refers to
those hidden powers within the body that help individual to attain spiritual upliftment. This asana
is also known as "Perfect Pose," because one attains perfection in Yoga by meditating in
this position. Siddhasana is useful to learn, since it is used as the practice seat for some of
the pranayamas and the mudras.

What is the technique of Siddhasana?

Start in Sukhasana with legs crossed. Take hold of one ankle or foot, place it on top of he other leg, with the outer edge of the raised foot pressing into the opposite calf, thigh, or groin. If you use this position regularly, make sure you alternate the leg that is raised so you develop flexibility evenly in both legs and hips.

 

What are the benefits of practicing Siddhasana?

Siddhasana directs the energy from the lower psychic centers upward through the spine thus it stimulates the brain and calms the entire nervous system. It redirects blood circulation to the lower spine and abdomen and tones the lumbar region of the spine, the pelvis and the abdominal organs, and balances the reproductive system and blood pressure. It stabilizes the sexual energy because of the position of the feet with respect to the genitals. It is beneficial to those suffering from wet dreams
