Follow-Up/Complementary Pose :: Fish Pose (Matsyasana).
Fish pose should be practised as a complementary pose without fail to keep the neck area out of strain.
Lay flat on fairly even ground/floor, preferably on soft and thin cotton bed mat. Should not practice on a small single cot or double sized cot to avoid any situation where there can be a risk of falling down from the cot to the ground of lower elevation bringing probable injury.
Soft mat is to be used to avoid pressure to the shoulder, head and neck regions.
No separate folds of rags or cotton sheet is to be used only for the shoulder, head and neck region. This makes the elevation higher, uneasy and strain the shoulder, neck and head with undue pressure.
Shoulder stand pose has some alerts and cautions.The practice of full-fledged shoulder should be avoided in the following conditions:-

Pregnancy: Don’t take up the practice of Sarvangasana after you become pregnant.
Salamba Sarvangasana is an intermediate to advanced version of Shoulder Stand Pose. This should not be practised unless proper experience is there on the part of the practitioner.
