Yoga Asana of the Month (August)

This month's yoga inspiration is fish pose (matsyasana). Are you beginning to see a pattern here? Okay I'll admit it, I'm partial to the animal poses! Fish pose is designed to stretch the belly muscles, the muscles between the ribs and stimulate the throat. If you can bend all the way back and touch your head to the floor, make sure the top of your head is resting on the floor. This will help you deepen into the posture. Advanced students can try padamasana matsyasana (lotus fish pose), a variation on fish pose that begins with the legs crossed in lotus pose, and then move into fish.
