Ardha Matsyendrasana
Half Lord of the Fishes Pose
Christy Nones McKenzie
Start seated in an easy crossed leg position. Release one leg out in front and bend the knee, hugging the knee into the chest with the sole of the foot on the floor. Sit up tall and inhale the opposite arm (to the bent knee) up by the ear. Lengthen through the side waist and begin to twist through the belly as you hook the elbow to the outside of the knee, bringing the opposite hand to the floor behind the sacrum. Hold for 3 breaths, lengthening through the spine on the inhale and twisting deeply through the belly on the exhale as you continue to press the elbow against the leg. Return to center and switch sides. 
Good for shoulder, hip, neck and spine strength.

Begin bending the elbow and raising the arm so bicep becomes parallel to the floor. Keeping elbow close to the body, kick the forearm back to straighten the arm, squeezing through the tricep muscle. Bend arm back in. That was 1 rep, continue on and challenge yourself to do 15-20 reps, then switch sides, lunging through opposite leg and kicking back with opposite arm.
