Yoga Poses For Healthy Skin: How To Fish Pose

This pose helps to moisturize the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by increasing blood flow to the face.

Here's how to practice Fish Pose:

  1. Lie on your back on your yoga mat with your legs extended and your arms at your sides.

  2. Bring your hands palms-down under your buttocks, with your elbows close to your body.

  3. Inhale and press your forearms and elbows into the mat as you lift your chest and head off the mat.

  4. Arch your back and lift your heart towards the ceiling. Let your head gently fall back and rest on the mat.

  5. Keep your legs engaged and press through your heels.

  6. Breathe deeply and hold the pose for a few breaths.

  7. To come out of the pose, exhale and slowly release your head and chest back down to the mat.

Some tips to keep in mind while practicing Fish Pose:

  • If you have any neck issues, keep your head lifted slightly or place a folded blanket or block under your head for support.

  • Engage your core muscles to protect your lower back.

  • If you feel any discomfort in your chest, come out of the pose slowly and gradually.

With regular practice, Fish Pose can help improve posture, increase lung capacity, and promote healthy blood circulation for a natural glow in the skin. Remember to practice with awareness and respect for your body's limitations.
