Standing or sitting for Shema


One may stand or sit while reciting Shema, but one may not recite Shema while lying on his back or stomach, because that would be disrespectful. One who is ill should try, at least, to turn on his side to the extent possible.

(Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 63:1)

Have a great day,
