Poses | The Fish Pose Properly | Yoga
1. Begin by standing up straight, with your feet hips-width apart and your arms relaxed by your side.
2. Bend through your knees and bring your body down into a wide-legged squat, keeping your back as straight as you can while lowering slowly. Make sure to keep the tops of your thighs parallel to the floor, and keep your feet rooted firmly on the ground.
3. Reach forward with both hands, placing them on the ground in front of you while continuing to sit low in the squat position.
4. When you’re ready, take a deep breath in and on an exhale, slowly lower onto the ground between you hands. Make sure to keep both your elbows open and pointing behind you, as well as tucking both shoulder blades in toward one another for support
5. Relax into this pose – ensuring that you are comfortable throughout this posture – before proceeding to do any other poses or stretches included in your practice. You may choose to remain here for several breaths before exiting the pose (optionally going back up into a squat before standing).
6. As you come out of this posture, gently push off from the ground with both hands and use them to slowly guide yourself back up into standing position as you inhale deeply.
