  1. 12th DORSAL – The vertebra D12 represents the motionless fulcrum of the dorso – lumbar hinge. At this level there is a change in rotational capacity and in the physiological curve of the spine (dorsal kyphosis, lumbar lordosis). Under the D12 there is only a relative rotation because the lumbar-sacral hinge rotates at a maximum of 5 °, which allows you to remain stable in your attitude during the rotation. The rotation degree of the dorsal section is 35 °, 45 ° / 40 ° the flexion in closing, 30 ° / 25 ° the extension, 20 ° the lateral inclination. This mobility is at its peak at D10 – D11 since these vertebrae are articulated with the fluctuating ribs, which are free of the sternum block. Looking at many students performing Matsyendra’s pose, I could notice that at 12th dorsal level, they remain slightly curved, closing the chest forward. Thus the pose is lived in a too humble and sad way. If only there is a little extension and lengthening at this point, the pose acquires a whole different aspect and another psychic value. Then you will find the dignity and sense of well-being typical of this āsana bearing the name of the founder of Hatha-yoga.
    WARNINGS: psychosomatics values are to be taken into consideration once you have eliminated any mechanical or physiological cause for the same disease. The same values can vary according to personal experiences.
