Supported Fish Pose

Salamba Matsyasana

5 - 15 minutes

This supported front body opener is great for anytime in your cycle. Keep the knees bent to protect your back and keep the bolster higher on the back (away from the low back). Shoulders are off the bolster on the topside. Place a block under the head. The knees are bent and knocked, soles of the feet on the floor, and feet mat distance apart. This protects and releases the lower back.

Use this position for finding more joy, gratitude, and acceptance in your experience. Also a nice option after pregnancy loss when you’re ready to open the heart again.
