Easy Lotus Pose (Sukhasana) can be practiced when you cannot not and do not practice Lotus pose. We generally sit on this pose on floor in informal situations. There might be someone who cannot practice Lotus pose due to some problems which I have already mentioned earlier. Your legs should be kept in a position so that it becomes helpful for the spine to remain in comfortable and natural posture helpful for any other yoga practice based on it and meditation as well.

Lotus Pose(Padmasana) vis-a-vis Easy Lotus Pose(Sukhasana): Another yoga practice just after Corpse pose is Lotus pose which can be practiced all by itself or solitarily. This one should be started practicing in childhood to youth phase of our life. If you do start this after the youth phase please do remember not to do so all on a sudden so that your knee do not get hurt. It is better to go for Sukhasana or easy lotus pose where you don’t have to sit cross-legged so rigidly and you can follow it as an alternative to lotus pose.
