Fish Pose with Bolster

From a bed or mat: You can also use a larger bolster or higher support. Try to have the end of the bolster at the bottom of your ribcage. In this case, you may need an additional blanket under your neck. While in the pose, take advantage of your expanded ribcage to do some deep breathing. You can rest in this position for a few minutes, if it is comfortable.

Rudra Swartz: Chair Fish Pose

“When I first started practicing yoga after using a wheelchair, backbends were my favorite poses. At first I would put my forearms on my armrests and my feet on the floor and bend way backward. After this asana, I would sit up and it would seem like my mind was the most restful it had been all day. After learning more backbends in the wheelchair, I started to use the bolster when I couldn’t necessarily lift myself up on my armrests. I found bending backward over the bolster behind my back very powerful.”
