Ardha Matsyendrasana or Half Lord of the Fishes Pose/Half Spinal Twist Pose
Ardha Matsyendrasana is the ninth of the 12 essential stances in Hatha yoga. The name for this asana is gotten from the Sanskrit, Ardha, signifying “half”; Matsya, signifying “fish”; Indra, signifying “lord”; and asana, signifying “present.”
To enter the represent, the yogi starts in Dandasana. The left foot is bowed so it lies outwardly of the correct thigh. The correct foot slides as close as conceivable to one side butt cheek. The correct elbow is set on the external side of the left knee with the hand pointed upward, making a turn in the body. This is rehashed on the contrary side.
