Siddha yoni asana

Definition - What does Siddha yoni asana mean?

Siddha yoni asana is a basic seated yoga pose for women. It is similar to a cross-legged position, except that the heel of the right foot presses against the labia majora and heel of the left foot rests atop the right heel and presses against the clitoris.

The name comes from the Sanskrit siddha, meaning “divine,” “powerful” or accomplished”; yoni, meaning “vagina,” “vulva” or “place of birth”; and asana, which means “pose,” “posture” or “seat.” In English, this posture is called accomplished pose for women.

Yogapedia explains Siddha yoni asana

Siddha yoni asana is a posture used for meditation that is the feminine counterpart of the siddhasana. This pose is thought to calm the physical body while energizing the mind. It promotes fertility and sexual function.

Siddha yoni asana is also believed to open and balance the muladhara (root) chakra, which is the foundation for opening the rest of the chakra energy centers. Muladhara creates a sense of grounding, security and stability on the mental, emotional and spiritual levels.
