Since sitting for meditation was one of the original goals of yoga, you might say that all poses lead to lotus. With a form resembling the flower, padmasana grounds and stabilizes the body, allowing the mind to blossom. This program offers three challenging and dynamic sequences that lead into lotus in unique ways. While the full expression of this advanced posture may not be attainable for everyone, the journey toward it is well worth the while. Like the flower it resembles, which grows in muddy waters, padmasana requires patience and perseverance before it can bloom.
