From a Half Lotus, make sure that the left foot is deep enough in the crease of the right hip. This will enable you to get into Full Lotus easier. Since I have a little bit of a tighter hip, I need a little momentum to get the other leg in place. So if you are anything like me, then please listen carefully ...
You will actually bend your right leg and then swing the lower half of the leg away from you. Then you will swing it gently yet briskly so that is catches on top of the left thigh. Once your foot is on the opposite thigh you will start to shimmy your right foot into the crease of the left hip. Now, if your hips are more flexible than mine, then you may not need to use this momentum. They will just land in Half Lotus with a bit more ease. We all have different bodies, so honor what yours comes with.
Once you are in position, point the knees up toward the sky and hold for 5-to-10 breaths.
Optional drill: If you want to challenge yourself further, then try knee crunches by bringing them down toward your chest for a breath and then pull them back up as high as you can without straining yourself. Do this 5 times and then release your Full Lotus by pausing in a traditional Headstand. Slowly bring yourself down into Child’s Pose to rest.
