Dear Yogis

There is also like on halasana a discussion on Matsyasana because it also can destroy parts of the cervical spine.

Some love it, some gave up teaching it.

So I thing there is also a need to dicuss it and I´m persanlly keen if anyone of you knows about possible safty supports for this asana.

All the best

I have an exaggerated cervical curve since birth. Family heritage. Too much Sarvangasana in a former life.

Matsayanasana brings great relief. Very good pose for toning the back muscles.

There is not much bodyweight on the neck. I'd say it is much safer than Halasana.
