According to Binda Kanayalkar, senior guide, GetSetUp, “‘Sukhasana’ is a posture which signifies a comfortable, steady and stable asan. Yogasutra describes this as ‘sthira sukham asanam’ ‘sthira’ means steady, ‘sukha’ means bliss, comfortable.”

“Sukhasana is very simple and can be performed by anyone who can sit on the floor or on a hard surface. Older adults with back or knee problems can also make an attempt to practice by folding one leg at a time with the support of a cushion under their thighs. Regular practice will show many benefits for physiological age-related ailments,” she added.
