Pincha Mayurasana Description
Pincha Mayurasana – Forearm Stand
‘Pincha’ translates to ‘feathered’ & ‘Mayur’ into ‘peacock’. Forearm stands greatly challenge the stability of the shoulders because we are balancing our whole body ontop of the forearms & elbows while creating alignment from the forearms and elbow through the upper arm, shoulder, hips and legs. This asana develops strength in shoulders, arms, back, & it stretches the front side of the body from the neck, shoulders, chest to the belly. This pose is one of those powerful balance builders aswell as a direct challenge to our internal equilibrium.
