Summer Shape Up Challenge: Half Lord of the Fishes Pose
Demonstrated by Taylor Nelms
Half Lord of the Fishes Pose – Sit up straight with your legs together in front of you. Bend your knees and slide your left foot under your right knee to be beside the outside of your right hip, letting your leg lie on the floor. Move your right foot over the left knee so the right knee is bent over the left. Put your left hand on your right foot and move your right hand behind your back. Twist your waist, shoulders and neck to the right and glance over your right shoulder. Hold for 5 breathes and repeat with the other side. Benefits: Stimulates digestion and metabolism as well as relieves fatigue, back pain and sciatica. It stretches the shoulders, hips, neck and spine. Tips: Remember to extend your spine, you’ll improve the stretch and better work the lower back muscles.
