Today we will look into some added preliminaries for the Matsya Asana and Dhanur Asana that we have learned earlier…
The Matsya Asana alignment with the chest expansion and the next flow-back touch of the crown-earth actually creates a transformation. The dhrishti or gaze in fact creates one-pointedness, called Ekagra. It is because of controlled inflexion called Nirudhdha. The oscillating or swerving mind normally is known as Kshipta nature.
The fish pose establishes a stable posture. YES. A state denoted “Vikshipta” strong ‘stillness’, steadiness or mindfulness is the real transformation one can experience.
The consciousness level itself can be slowly altered via this pose. Real “Parinama” or ‘state-change’ is the wonder of this stroke. The vinyasa flow of visuddha chakra of the throat and the energy percolation of the Sahasra Chakra of the crown synergies the body-mind-spirit continuum.
Alongside when we come to the Dhanur Asana the rhythmic laya is added on to the yogini/yogi brain-brawn fixation. We can have the parsva or flank effect (balanced sliding/inflection) too.
