Peacock Pose Mayurasana

This 15 minute tutorial will walk you through some exercises and tips for greater success in Mayurasana (Peacock Pose). Peacock Pose is unique - which is why it is challenging, but also why it is so potent. It strengthens and stretches your wrists and fingers, it strengthens your arms and tones your core muscles, and it even strengthens the muscles in your legs and back. Not to mention - it is said to be good for your digestion. B.K.S. Iyengar says, "As a peacock destroys snakes, this asana kills toxins in the body." Please note: if you have wrist issues such as carpal tunnel syndrome, this is not the pose for you!
