Yoga Lotus Pose

Lotus Pose is the most well known of all the yoga pose today. Considered by many to be the iconic yoga pose, the Lotus Pose is often used for meditation and many yoga classes begin or end with this pose. However, Lotus Pose is an advanced pose and far from ideal for beginners. Lotus Pose is often held for long periods of time for meditation and pranayama but that can be difficult for beginners or even intermediate students whose expectation have been raised unfairly.
