Half Lord of the Fishes Pose

Performed by Marin Jayden



Benefits of the Half Lord of the Fishes Pose: This variation will energize the spine and can be therapeutic for those with asthma. It will help with back pain, fatigue, and menstrual discomfort.

  • When you’re sitting on the floor with your legs straight out in front of you, bend your knees and put your feet on the floor.
  • Slide your left foot under your right leg to the side of your right hip.
  • The right foot should go over the left leg to the outside of your left hip.
  • The right knee should point toward the ceiling.
  • Twist toward the inside of the right thigh and press your hands against the floor to the outside of your body.
  • Sit up straight and lengthen your torso.

Modifications: If it is difficult to get your torso against you inner thigh, retry this position when you’re arm’s length from a wall. Before twisting, press against the wall with your arms. Push your torso toward your knee.
