Eventually it'll feel like heaven—we mean, Nirvana. Warning This pose takes a high degree of hip and knee flexibility, both very delicate joints. Don't force yourself further than you can easily go. Step 1: Sit on mat Sit on the mat with your legs extended out in front of you. Step 2: Lift right foot onto thigh Bend your right leg at the knee, moving your right foot toward your left thigh. Gently lift the foot up onto the thigh near the hip crease. The sole of your foot should be facing up. Tip If you can, move your foot across to the outside of the thigh in order to deepen the pose. The sole of your foot will be facing out. Step 3: Repeat on left leg Now do the same with your left leg, moving your left foot onto your left thigh. Step 4: Rest hands on knees Place the back of your hands on your knees, and form a circle with your index finger and thumb on both hands. Allow the other three fingers to point directly outward. Tip You may also simply rest your hands on your knees, palms-down. Step 5: Hold pose Breathe steadily and smoothly. Stay in the pose as long as you are comfortable—some yoga practitioners meditate in this pose for extended periods of time, sometimes even several hours. Step 6: Release pose Release the pose by removing your right foot and then your left foot from your hips, relax, and return to this earthly plane of existence. Did You Know? Blue lotus petals, a variety popular in ancient Egypt, were found scattered over Tutankhamen's body when the pharaoh's tomb was opened in 1922.
