If you suffer from anxiety, digestion issues or tight Quadriceps, here's an exercise that will help your Stomach Meridian relax which in turn will help these issues when practiced regularly.
Kneel down on the floor, bring your heels together with the top of the feet touching the floor and the buttocks resting on the heels, as demonstrated in the photo.
If this pose is difficult on your ankles, you can roll a towel and place it under the ankles for support.
Keep your back, neck and head aligned and straight, eyes looking forward, palms resting on knees or thighs and weight distributed evenly on your sitbones.
