If you're having issues with the player:

Baddha means bound; ardha is half, matsya is fish and indra is ruler. This deep twist with a bind is a fantastic stretch for the spine, hips, legs and shoulders. Ensure that your pelvis acts as an anchor so that your spine can lift and lengthen to its fullest capacity. Breathe deeply and avoid stiffening the body.

Pose Position: Sitting
Body Position: Twists
Body Part: Shoulders, Back, Hips
