Yoga Monday : Fish Pose

Fish Pose (matsya):

Merry Christmas Eve!

Today's pose is great for chest congestion and thyroid issues.  Both items I suffer from.  Here in Central Texas it's the start of "cedar season," meaning the cedar pollen is about to engulf our air and render me nearly paralyzed with congestion, red eyes and general malaise.  This pose helps to loosen my chest just a bit and gives me a slight amount of relief.  I also suffer from and under-active thyroid (hypothyroidism) and this pose is supposed to help massage the thyroid and give it a little boost.  Namaste.
