This blog post is written as part of A to Z Challenge. This involves the challenge of a blog post on a topic starting with an alphabet on each day through the entire month of April excluding Sundays starting from A to Z. My simple posts will be themed after Yoga postures with my own creations as images.
Matsyasana (Fish pose/Open chest pose) stretches and stimulates the organs of digestive and respiratory systems. While it relieves tension is the neck, shoulders and the throat area, it also stretches the muscles of the hips and rips. This pose is proven to have therapeutic benefits for asthma, rounded shoulders and many respiratory disorders.
