Asana of the week : Fish (Matsyasana)

Lay flat on your back, feet together

Place the hands under your thighs, palms flat on the floor

Inhale, pushing with the elbows lift your chest up, until you are sitting halfway up

Exhale, drop the head back, place the crown of the head on the floor

Hold position for a few seconds, as long as it's comfortable, and breath deeply

To come out of the position, inhale, lift the head and straighten the back

Exhale, lower head and shoulders to the ground, so you are laying on your back again


:)Yogi pro tip: The crown of the head should be touching the ground, but the weight of the body is on the elbows

By pushing with the elbows, you arch the chest

In the final position, breathe deeply, feel the rib cage expanding with each inhalation


Benefits of the pose: Removes stiffness from cervical, thoracic and lumbar regions

Increases lung capacity and relieves spasm in bronchial tubes

Stretches the intestines and abdominal organs

Regulates the function of the thyroid gland and stimulates the thymus gland,

boosting the immune system

Moods, emotions and stress is regulated
