Sitting on the floor

I like to sit on the floor as far as possible. I had got out of the habit until I watched a Japanese movie and saw everyone sitting on tatami mats, even guys in business suits.

Sitting with our legs crossed without a wall to support our backs is one of the easiest ways to get fit while doing nothing at all! This asana, or posture, is called sukhasana, the happy pose.

Asana in Sansrit means both the pose AND what you sit on. There is no difference between the act of sitting and what is sat upon! Ponder this, preferably cross-legged on the floor.
