  • Do not push yourself into the Padmasana pose as you may injure yourself. Be comfortable. 
  • Lengthen the spine from the crown of the head and strongly engage your core muscles. 
  • Open the chest towards the ceiling and draw the shoulder blades back and down. 


  • If you experience a backache, perform the pose under the guidance of an experienced yoga teacher because keeping the spine straight requires a lot of efforts. 
  • In the pose, do not strain or move the neck unnecessary.
