Yoga for Absolute Beginners: Sukhasana and Dandasana
In this class, David shows you how to comfortably sit on the floor in two of yoga's more common seated positions, easy cross-legged (sukhasana) and staff pose (dandasana). He also helps you understand some of the basic yoga principles as you learn how to stretch your body effectively. This class is a part of a 'Yoga for Beginners' series.

Great to come back to!
Great class even for non beginners. Clear and concise. Wonderful!
Excellent instructions, thank you David.
I am a 74 yr old female who has had a left hip replacement several yrs ago due to a fall and then 2 revisions due to a faulty hip liner from the 1st operation. I have done some yoga classes but can’t sit comfortably cross-legged because my hip was set in a position to prevent dislocation (I had dislocated twice). My left knee sticks way up and doesn’t feel good even with blanket support. I want to do yoga and flexibility exercises. Any suggestions how I should sit to do yoga?
