Illustrations showing various types of Seated Yoga Poses

Seated Yoga Poses help to tone the belly, massage internal organs, and reduce back pain. In these ground poses, the yogi remains sitting the entire time. Their benefits are physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. They include improved body circulation and the strengthening of thigh and pelvic muscles.

Seated Poses also help reduce extra fat from the belly, thighs, hips, and waist, while also helping to build the immune system as they keep the body grounded and evenly distribute body weight. Seated Yoga Poses include the Easy Pose, Fire Log Pose, Heron Pose, and Lotus Pose.
