Fish Pose (MATSYASANA) for Spinal Flexibility
Sometimes it is good to be a fish out of water! Here's how to do Fish Pose:
- From a sitting position with your legs extended (Staff Pose), walk back about two steps and come down on your forearms.
- Look towards your feet. As you inhale expand the chest towards the ceiling. As you exhale, let the head drop back as little or as much as you would like.
- When you are ready to come out of the pose, look towards your feet, and walk your hand forward towards the hips.
Fish Pose is beneficial to stretching and strengthening the upper back, opening the throat, stretching the hip flexors and abdominals.
