Svastikasana

Setting properly (i.e evenly) the two soles (i.e. feet) between the opposite thighs and knees, sitting on level ground with body erect, this is known as Svastikasana.

Note :- This is taken amongst meditative postures. In Indian culture Svastika C is very popular as an auspicious sign. When we sit in this posture, the position of legs resemble the Svastika, hence it is called Svastikasana.

Technique :-
  1. Stretch out both legs together, hands by the side of the body, palms resting on the ground, fingers together pointing forward.

  2. Now fold your one leg at the knees and put it against the joint of the other thigh.

  3. Fold the other leg and put it near the joint of the other thigh.

  4. Put both hands on the knees in jnana mudra.

  5. While returning to the original position first stretch out right leg.

  6. Then stretch out left leg and keep both legs together.
Remember :-
  1. Sit erect keeping the supine straight.

  2. The two soles should be placed between the thigh and the calf muscles.
