Matsyasana (pronounced maht-see-AHS-uh-nuh), also commonly known as Fish Pose, predictably comes from the Sanskrit word “matsya” meaning fish. Matsyasana also strengthens the upper back muscles and the back of the neck, which can improve flexibility in the spine and one's posture.
Those poses where legs are up and head down called as the inversion postures. We are doing counter balance posture after the inversion asana because of two reasons. That's why we are doing 'fish pose' after the shoulder stand to release the tension of chest and neck.
