Sitting position

Remain in the same sitting pose that was utilized for pawan sanchalana, the previous kriya2. Only move and adjust your position if you feel any pain and stiffness in your body.

The traditional sitting poses are padmasana or siddhasana (siddha yoni asana for women). If these asanas are not comfortable then you can use any other comfortable sitting pose such as ardha padmasana, swastikasana, etc.3

Keep your back straight throughout the entire practice; the only part of the body that should be moved is the head.
