  3. Now fold the right leg from knee and place the right foot under the left leg thigh.
  4. Take any mudra (hand gesture) and rest your wrist on the knee. I prefer Dhyaan Mudra & Gyan Mudra.

  • Your spine or backbone must be straight or erect.
  • For Yoga and Meditation wear something comfortable clothes. Too tight cloths will distract you.
