Video of the Week: Half Lord of the Fishes Pose (Arda Matseyendrasana)

This classic seated twist, which is called both Half Lord of the Fishes pose and Half King of the Fishes pose, stretches and strengthens the muscles and fascia around your spine and core while stretching your outer hips. If you find this seated position too challenging for your bottom leg, try Sage's Twist 3 (Marichiyasana 3) instead. Those with vulnerable lower backs or osteoporosis should approach this cautiously or skip it altogether.
