How to perform Perfect Pose

Start in a seated position. Bend the left leg at the knee and press the sole of the foot to the thigh. Bend the right leg and place the foot over the left ankle. The heel of the right foot is pressed against the pubic bone. Your hands rest on your knees. Change sides and repeat.

What is Siddasana?

Siddhasana or Perfect Pose, known for its symmetry and balance, brings evenness to the hips and supports the spinal lift. Through its balance from the foundation up, it brings the mind to quietness, and for this reason, is considered to be one of the four most powerful seated meditation poses.

When to use Siddasana?

Siddasana is a great pose for calming the nerves and bringing your mind to rest. It can be incorporated at any point in the practice since it can be used both as a way to reconnect to your breath in-between asanas and as a way of entering into a deeper meditative state at the end of the practice.

This is one of the most effective meditation poses. It allows the practitioner to get grounded and experience a sense of lightness at the same time. Moreover, taking deep concentrated breaths in a bound, seated posture redirects the blood circulation into the lower back, abdomen, and pelvis, helping you maintain health in your pubic and abdominal regions.
