Half Lotus Pose (Ardha Padmasana)

Illustrated yoga poses of women performing the Half Lotus Pose

Half Lotus Pose is a seated beginner posture used mostly in meditation and as a way to work up to the full Lotus Pose for Yogi’s that are not yet as flexible in the lower body. Half Lotus Pose is a hip opener that also stretches the knees and ankles. Half Lotus Pose is typically used in the beginning or end of a practice and typically for breathing exercises and meditation. Yogi’s with knee or hip issues use caution.

To do Half Lotus Pose, start in an easy sitting pose with the legs gently crossed at the ankle and with one hand, gently lift and place the foot on top of the left thigh, close to the hip. Ground through the sit bones while lifting the crown of the head and allow the shoulders to drop. Take some deep breaths and slowly release, switching sides for balance.
