My Day 17 Yoga

Matsyasana:(Fish Pose)
 Mostly this is done with "Padmasana" but  Padmasana is beyond the capacity of most beginners, here we’ll follow this initially.Generally this is considered as a counterpose for "Sarvangasana"

  • Have a cautious approach if you are suffering from back problems.
  • Care should be taken if you are suffering with neck or shoulder problems

  • Lie down on your back 
  • Put your legs straight and feet together. 
  • Place your hands, palms down, underneath your thighs.
  • Press down on your elbows, inhale and arch your back. Drop your head back so that the top of your head is on the floor, but your weight should rest on your elbows. 
  • Exhale. Breathe deeply while in the position, keeping your legs and lower torso relaxed. To come out of the pose, lift your head and place it gently back down, then release the arms.

  •  Helps to regulate emotions and stress.
  •  Expands the lung capacity.
  •  Opens the chest, correcting round-shoulders.
  •  Strengthens the back muscles.
  •  Gives a backward stretch to the thoracic and cervical sections of the spine.
  •  Gently stretches the neck muscles and shoulders.
  •  Encourages deep breathing.
  •  Helps relieve asthma.
  •  Brings an increased supply of blood to the cervical and thoracic regions of the back.
