Matt performing Back Garden Padmasana. The word Padmasana comes from the sanskrit term ‘padma’ which means lotus and ‘asana’ which is traditionally translated as ‘seat’  – so ‘seat of the lotus’ . This advanced posture is used in both Yoga and Meditation,it  requires good open hips and flexible knees. A beginner would take their time to move into the ‘full lotus’ i.e. with the right foot on the left thigh and left foot on the right thigh- it is best advised to learn the posture from a qualified teacher who can instruct the student with the correct method.
