Pincha Mayurasana


Feathered Peacock Pose
Although this pose is traditionally practiced in the center of the room, the fear of falling can make it impossibly challenging for those new to this pose. As an alternative, we offer steps to learn this pose using an open wall space. You may also need a spotter for this pose.
Procedure:
1. Start in Dolphin Pose, with your finger tips a few inches from the wall and your gaze in between your forearms. With your hands firm and shoulder blades drawing together, begin to walk your feet towards your elbows. Walk your feet as close as your hamstrings will comfortably allow. Ideally you want your hips to be directly over your shoulders.
2. Firm your abdominal muscles and strengthen your back body by drawing your shoulders tightly together and hugging your elbows toward your midline. Now raise your right leg up in the air. Be sure your leg is not rotating out to the side, but is firm and straight. Take 3 breaths here.
3. You can stay here, or take a few hops. Keeping your right leg straight and strong, bend your left knee to get some power. Jump away from the floor,extending your right leg strongly towards the sky. Your right leg may come to the wall behind you.
4. Bring your left leg up to meet your right leg. Hug your legs towards one another and extend the balls of your feet skywards. Push down strongly through your arms, draw your navel inwards and lengthen your tailbone towards your heels.
5. Breathe here for as long as you can, slowly building up to holding this pose for 1 minute or more. Lower your feet and take child's pose, then repeat onthe other side.
