Yoga postures � ardha matsyendrasana I

  1. Ardha matsyendrasana I is named after Matsyendra, the god of fish. It is the first and relatively easiest asana from a series of three intensive seated torsion postures that prepare the body for full (paripurna) matsyendrasana. This yoga exercise mainly trains the back, whereby the vertebrae are turned in a spiral with respect to each other. Ardha matsyendrasana trains numerous muscle groups. It is the ideal asana for those with stiff hips, shoulders and neck. Ustrasana, baddha konasana, paschimottanasana and the standing twisted postures, such as parivrtta trikonasana, are good preparatory exercises for the "sitting half-torsion I".

Origin of ardha matsyendrasana I (seated half torsion I)

  1. The Sanskrit word ardha means 'half'. Asana means '(sitting) posture' and forms the third phase of the eightfold yoga path of Patanjali (Yoga Sutras). In Hinduism, Matsyendra is the name of the god who is considered one of the founders of Hatha Yoga. According to myth, Shiva went to a deserted island to initiate his consort Parvati into the many secrets and mysteries of yoga. Shiva is the dancing god of destruction who ends every evolutionary cycle to make room for new beginnings. He saw a fish a stone's throw from the shore motionless and listening very attentively to everything he told his consort about yoga
