Transcript

  • 1. Finding Your Perfect Meditation Posture
  • 2. If you have ever tried meditation before, you have probably experienced some pain from sitting in an uncomfortable position for long periods of time.
  • 3. This is because you are not using the correct meditation posture for your body.
  • 4. Not everyone can take sitting with their legs crossed for ten minutes at a time; in fact you could end up cutting off your circulation and hurting yourself.
  • 5. Finding your perfect meditation posture may take a little time, but there are a few positions that many people find works for them much better than others.
  • 6. The key to finding a good meditation posture is finding one that is the most comfortable for you.
  • 7. If you start experiencing pain, especially after only a minute or two, the posture is not going to help your meditation.
  • 8. There is no specific posture you must use, so just find one that is comfortable.
  • 9. It is also important that the posture you choose keeps you awake the entire time.
  • 10. Try out some of these meditation postures to find one that works for you.
  • 11. Tailor’s posture: This is one of the most commonly seen postures, and is even used to help pregnant women prepare for birth.
  • 12. Sit down and bend your legs so that the bottom of your feet rest against each other in front of you.
  • 13. Rest the back of your hands on your knees.
  • 14. Although this posture is good for some, it may be difficult for you to spread your legs that far apart.
  • 15. Burmese posture: This posture is very similar to the tailor’s posture, but it is a bit easier on the hips.
  • 16. Instead of making the bottom of your feet touch each other, tuck one foot behind the other.
  • 17. This lets you bring your legs closer together to whatever is comfortable for you.
  • 18. The Burmese posture is a Buddhist practice and used in Zen meditation.
  • 19. Lotus posture: This is a good meditation posture for people with a lot of flexibility in their knees.
  • 20. Take one foot and prop it up on your opposite leg, then do the same with your other foot on your other leg.
  • 21. The bottom of your feet should point towards your body.
  • 22. The lotus posture is used by many different meditations and represents the connection between Heaven and Earth.
  • 23. Kneeling: If you can’t find a meditation posture that works for you, try a kneeling posture.
  • 24. This is much more comfortable for most people, especially if you are overweight or have limited flexibility.
  • 25. Kneel down and sit on top of your legs with the arches of your foot pointing up.
  • 26. Try each one of these postures for a few minutes and decide which one you like best.
  • 27. You shouldn’t feel like your pinching any part of your body.
  • 28. If your legs or feet fall asleep while in position it is a good sign that you are cutting off circulation.
  • 29. If this happens a lot try to increase your flexibility with exercises.
  • 30. Many of these meditation postures feel much better when you use a cushion.
  • 31. Do a little research on different types of meditation posture cushions to find ones that may help you.
  • 32. Resource Box: Many people use cushions or pads when they meditate.
  • 33. It takes off the pressure from sitting in the same position for so long and can help promote better posture.
  • 34. You can use a regular pillow or you can go purchase a specially made meditation posture cushion from store.
