This pose helps in allowing the body to be held completely steady for long periods of time, applying pressure to the lower spine, which has a relaxing effect on the nervous system, and stimulates the digestive process. Let's look at the steps: Sit with legs straight in front of you. Bend one leg and place the sole of the foot on the inside of the opposite thigh. Bend the other leg and place the foot on top of the opposite thigh.
