Lord of the Fishes Pose (Matsyendrasana)

Set of drawings of women performing the Lord of the Fishes Pose

Lord of the Fishes Pose is a challenging seated twist that opens the hips and gives length to the spine while also stretching out the shoulders and opening the chest. Most Yogi’s will do Half Lord of the Fishes Pose for a while before going for the full version of Lord of the Fishes.

It can be difficult to understand how to get into Lord of the Fishes Pose at first but the basics of the posture are to sit on the ground with one leg bend on the ground with the foot close the the body and the other leg over it with a bent knee. Take a breath and twist towards the bent knee and press the shoulder against the bent knee or even bind the hands behind the back.
