The Fish pose, or Matsyasana, mimics the form of a fish swimming in water. This pose is known for its ability to open up the chest and throat, promoting deep breathing and relaxation. Lifting your heart towards the sky, stimulates the thyroid and parathyroid glands, balancing hormones and boosting metabolism.

A study published in the International Journal of Yoga found that practising Matsyasana significantly improves respiratory function and lung capacity. This makes it particularly beneficial for individuals dealing with respiratory issues or those looking to enhance their breathing during meditation or physical activities.

How to do it:

1. Lie on your back with your legs extended and feet together.

2. Place your hands underneath your hips, palms down.

3. Lift your chest and arch your back, tilting your head back so the crown of your head touches the floor.

4. Hold for a few breaths, then slowly release.
