Virasana an ok alternate?

Postby M1NDFUL » Thu Mar 14, 2013 4:00 pm

Is the Virasana (hero pose) an ok alternate for meditation? I feel as though I may have strained my LCL on my right knee a little being a little ambitious in yoga. It's not awful, I can sit in a normal cross-legged position, but it still puts a little bit of pressure on the outside of my knee. I'd like to find a possible alternate posture for meditation for a couple months just to give my knee a rest.

There are Buddhist meditations for walking, lying and sitting. In your case, a chair might be the most appropriate.

Good to know. It appears I am looking in the wrong areas trying to find other meditation methods/postures online.
