MATSYASANA. fish pose

April 11, 2012

Backward Extension Posture or Counter Posture saravangasana (candle posture) and halasana (plow pose), within those two approaches is where we place matsyasana, the fish pose.

Do you want to know how you build it? Well, very easy... - To begin, sit on the floor with your legs stretched out and together, your back straight towards the sky and the palms of your hands on the floor, next to your buttocks. Stretch your trunk vertically as you take a deep breath. - Exhaling, gently drop the trunk backwards, while supporting one forearm and then the other. - Inhale again while projecting your chest up, sink your kidneys and slide your elbows forward a little. The spine should be arched so that the head hangs back until it rests lightly on the ground. - To finish, let your hands rest on the hip bones while the body weight is distributed between the buttocks, elbows and hips. The legs are relaxed, although they could also be in a lotus shape that you have already built from the beginning. You can hold the posture between 1 and 3 minutes, that will depend on you, listen to your body... and if you practice it within a craft do it after halasana You can get out of the posture by pressing with your elbows, while inhaling, and raise your head until you bring your chin to your chest. Exhaling tilts the pelvis forwards and backwards, supports the sacrum, the lower back, the dorsal area, the neck and finally the head. What benefits does it bring you? Practicing the position of the fish, regulates the thyroid glands, improves pulmonary ventilation which in turn helps you in treatments for bronchitis, asthma and other respiratory complications, straightens the back and strengthens the muscles of the dorsal area.
