Day 16 of 31. Today we are learning a cross-legged sitting meditation pose. This pose is named Lotus because the position resembles the flower by the same name. This pose is excellent for meditation because it allows you to remain focused for a long time. This can be a difficult pose that may need to be eased into.

To perform Lotus: Sit with legs stretched out in front of you with your spine straight. Bend your right knee and place it on your left thigh with the sole of the foot point upward and the heel close to the abdomen. Repeat on other side. Place your hands on your knees. Hold pose while slowly breathing in and out. Keep your back straight while looking ahead.
