1 Min Read

Mayurasana is made of two Sanskrit words, mayur + asana (mayur is peacock and asana means posture). In this yoga posture, one is raised like a horizontal stick holding the floor with both the palms with the support of elbows. The final posture resembles a peacock. This asana tones up the abdominal portion of the body. It also strengthens the fore arms, wrists and elbows. This pose is aslo excellent for the metabolism of both food and emotions by regulating the manipura (navel) chakra.

Mayurasana is a very important balancing asana but demands physical strength. In this asana the entire weight of the body remains on the navel and it is possible to lose balance at any moment. Those suffering from cervical spondylitis are not recommended to practice it.
