The Easy Pose is a relaxation pose and normally follows the Corpse Pose.
Also known by its Sanskrit name of Sukhasana, the Easy Pose is a very good pose for meditation. You only have to sit down on the floor, or on your yoga mat, bend your knees, clasp your arms around them and press them until they reach your chest and your spine erects. Then, release your arms and place your legs in a crossing position, letting your knees fall down to the floor. Make sure you place your hands on your knees and your palms face up.
It is important to keep your head up and your spine as straight as possible. Just as it happens in the case of most of the yoga poses, breathing is important in the Easy Pose, as well. Thus, you have to make sure you fill you lungs with air and hold it as long as it is comfortable. It is advisable to always breathe through your nose. While seated in the Easy Pose, relax your face, your jaws and your belly.
It is a great practice for any one of any age, and, should be done frequently. The Easy Pose is, however, an exercise to be avoided after a chronic or recent knee injury or inflammation, as it might be uncomfortable and possibly aggravate the condition.
In order to increase your comfort in this pose, you can place a folded blanket either under your knees or under your hipbones.
This pose is excellent for meditation, as it is not difficult to perform and it promotes inner calm and relaxation.
