This asana has its name from a great yogi called Matsyendranatha who used these postures mainly.

Bend the left knee back so that the heel is under the buttocks.

Bend your right knee and swing it over the left thigh, feet down and knee up.

Turn your body to the right, then raise the left hand and place the elbow over the right knee.

Pushing the knee more to your left, hold the left knee with your left hand.

Twist your body all the way to the right hand back, exhale and hook the right leg.

Come out of this position and perform the same twist on the other side.
