Master fish pose in 5 steps



Matsyasana

Matsya= fish and  Asana = pose
you can say to Matsyasana as Fish Pose

Benefit

Opens your shoulders and chest; softens the often-tight middle back; stretches your neck and thyroid; offering a balance of opening without grasping, and of relaxing without collapse.

Instruction

1. Sit in Dandasana (Staff Pose), with your legs extended in front of you and your spine long.

2. Slowly roll onto your back. Press your palms down and lift up onto the top of your head.

3. Walk your fingers toward your feet until your arms are straight—your elbows should be off the ground. Again press down tightly with your palms, and tuck your shoulder blades into your back; this will raise and open your chest and support your neck.

4. Keep your legs and feet strongly engaged. If it feels like there’s too much pressure on your head or spine.

5. Place your attention on the sensation of your breath right at the blade of your nostrils. Do not think about or imagine the breath, but virtually, tune into the feeling of the wind energy passing in and out of your body. Let your mind settle into this practice of close consideration.


Avoid these Common Mistakes



Do not compress through the chest and scrunch your neck and shoulders.







Do not let your feet flutter open to the sides. This can give pressure on your low back.

  1. I'll bet you won't guess which muscle in your body is the #1 muscle that gets rid of joint and back pain, anxiety and burns fat.

    If this "secret" most powerful primal muscle is healthy, you are healthy.
