How to sit in Sukhasana?

For Sukhasana sit in cross leged position with your spine straight and hand resting on your knees. You can adapt this to suit your needs; by sitting on a cushion with your legs crossed; or if you have knee problems, sitting with one or both legs extended out in front of you.

What are the benefits of sitting in Sukhasana?

Sukhasana opens the hips and stretchs the spine. It promotes grounded ness and inner calm and relieves physical and mental exhaustion and tiredness. It intensifies the state of serenity, tranquility, and eliminates anxiety. 

 

Cautions

This asana should be avoided in case of recent or chronic knee or hip injury or inflammation.
