Matsy means fish. In this posture, the shape of the body becomes like a fish, hence it is called a Matsyasana. This seat is capable of widening the chest and keeping it healthy.
How to do Matsyasana
To do this posture, you should spread the mat on the floor and sit straight and sit down. After this, put on your right foot on the left thigh and the left leg on the right thigh and sit in the padmasana posture.
Keep both palms open on the ground. Now bring both your hands under the body and put them under your hips. Keep in mind the palms must be under the knees and both the elbows should not be too far apart.
Now lift your chest upwards and at the same time tilt the head and neck back and touch the head from the ground. Keep your feet and buttocks stable on the ground and try to lift the chest by putting it on the elbow, not the head.
Finally, hold the thumb of both feet with the fingers of your hands and do not let the elbows loose.
Stay in this position and breathe slowly. Stay in this position for 15 to 30 seconds and then relax for a while. Gradually increase the time duration of medicines after regular exercise.
