5 Health Benefits of Sukhasana (Easy Sitting Pose)
First of all, in order to reap the benefits of Sukhasana, you need to lean into an intense meditative state which is a result of concentration, and deep-breathing exercises.
Start with making your actions and words more kind towards the society by the daily implementation of Karma Yoga. Be patient during this process, as clearing up your intentions, purifying your soul by removing the toxic behavior or energies from around you, needs some time to execute. Another important tip is to eat healthy, nutritious food to stay energized, and positively influenced all the time.
Yoga doesn’t care about what you have been, but what you are becoming since yoga needs to be lived with all your vulnerabilities displayed on your sleeves. Only then, Sukhasana will leave you in a state of blissful attitude, a charming personality, and a positive aura.
Have only love in your heart for others. The more you see the good in them, the more you will establish the good in yourself.~ Paramahansa Yogananda
