How to Pincha Mayurasana (forearm stand) in yoga

What is Pincha Mayurasana?

Pincha Mayurasana, Forearm Stand, Feathered Peacock Pose…whatever your preference when it comes to naming this challenging inversion, the plentiful benefits remain the same.

For me personally the journey to mastering this challenging balance was not so much about building the strength but cultivating awareness. Letting go of ego is mandatory if you are aiming to one day hold Pincha Mayurasana.

The journey to conquering this pose is the most humbling one, as not only does one have to find the strength but also the mobility. There is so much effort and connection with where your body is physically and for that reason it is one of my favourite poses to practice.
