Fishy Fishy

Yoga Every Damn Day As a part of A to Z April Blogging challenge, I am going to post a series of Yoga poses. Don't worry I will keep it simple and crisp... and try not to make it boring.

Ardha Matsyendrasana or Half Lord of the Fish 

Yo!! this fish is getting some spinal twists :)

Benefits: Half Lord of the Fishes pose opens, lengthens, nourishes and realigns the spine. This pose stimulates the nervous, digestive and reproductive systems. Source


Matsyasana or Fish Pose



This pose stretches hip flexors, muscles between ribs, upper back, front of the neck and belly

  13. That's a great picture of you on the rock. :)

    Unfortunately, I wouldn't be able to do this yoga pose as I have a metal rod in my back. :(
