Poses | The Fish Pose Preparation In Half Lotus | Yoga
1. Start seated in either full Lotus or half Lotus posture, whichever is more comfortable for you.
2. Place your hands on your knees, palms facing up. Ensure that your spine is straight and chest is open.
3. Inhale and bring your hands together in prayer position at the centre of your chest, then slowly exhale and lower your hands to rest on top of each knee. This is known as the ‘Gyan Mudra’ position.
4. Hold your breath and slowly arch back until you are in the ‘Fish Pose’, similar to a backbend position, with the crown of your head resting on the floor behind you. Keep the Gyan Mudra hand position throughout this movement.
5. Hold this pose for 5-10 breaths, ensuring to maintain a strong sense of spinal alignment and full body relaxation throughout the pose. Remain mindful of any discomfort felt during this practice and adjust accordingly as necessary.
6. To come out of the pose, inhale deeply and slowly lift up with control by engaging your abdominal muscles throughout the movement until you reach an upright seated position in half lotus once again
