    For females, place the left foot close to labia majora of vagina.
  3. Now take the right foot by folding right leg from knee and place it over the left foot.
  4. To make Siddhasana Yoga pose steadier, slide the right foot toes in left legs calf and inner thigh.
  5. Take any mudra (hand gesture) and rest your wrist on the knee. I prefer Dhyaan Mudra & Gyan Mudra.

  • You have to touch your left heels to Perineum or Labia Majora of vagina.
