Yesterday's answer, today's query

Answer: Yes, Anila, Sonia and others... the sarvangasana compresses the neck, the fish extends it. Some of u said the opposite, nevertheless, the general idea there is that one works the neck this way, and the other works the neck that way:)

Query: What would be a counter pose for a forward bend? Any forward bend? And why?
All these questions: they are here  just to make u think a bit, so that the yoga school u try is a wise one. That u have the wisdom to chose a school or style which considers these aspects of the poses:) My own experience has been that most people who start to teach, including those who do advanced poses personally, do not bring much wisdom to the teaching. Why that is so, u guess:)

I think a back bend should be followed by some pose like the child's pose or pashchimottasana.Going with the "if you crunch,then next step should be to expand the same muscle/region" logic.
