Yogasana posture while lying down

Fish pose


This posture cures stiffness and pain in the neck, chest, legs and waist. It relieves headache, pain in the eyes, ears, and tonsils. These organs get increased blood supply from this asana. The rib-cage and lungs expand, increasing lung capacity. It helps in the practice of celibacy. It increases concentration and purifies the mind. It also helps in eliminating nocturnal emissions and nerve weak­ness.


To fully gain the benefits of Sarvangasana and Halasana it is important to practice Matsyasana.
