SIMHASANA – LION POSE

Simhasana painting

Simhasana is a meditative posture.  The weight of the body is evenly spread on the shins and the hands.  The spine is straight and there is a feeling of extension in the spinal column.  The abdomen is soft and relaxed and the pressure on the palms of the hands and wrists relieves stress and tension.

Closing the eyes and focusing the gaze on the eyebrow centre is called Shambhavi Mudra.  This produces a profound calming effect on the brain waves and helps us move towards meditation.
