Time: 13:00 – 17:00
With: Revital Prisler – Classical Yoga

Join me in our search for allignment. 

Pincha Mayurasana (‘the peacock pose’) is one of the four inversions we have in our yoga practice and a fun to do as you can see the world upside down, which is a challenge to the body and to the mind, to keep the allignment whilst you are upside down.

What we are going to do

  • We will start with some resting poses
  • Sitting, Vayu and Pranayama
  • Short tea break
  • Active preparation (asanas)
  • We will learn the basic skills of the Peacock Pose, combined with the principles of rooting, connecting, elongation and the vayus.
  • Balancing in Pincha Mayurasana
  • We will finish our practice with resting poses
  • And we are concluding the worskhop with a Q&A


Pincha Mayurasana

The peacock pose (elbow balance) is from the family of arm balancings, which we practice before the handbalancings series and also before the backbend series.

Pincha Mayurasana is an active and warming position, which is working on the arms, the shoulders and the upper back in connection to gravity.

Together with Adhomukha Vrksasana (handstand), the peacock pose is performed regularly next to the wall as well as in the middle of the room (with help).

The ‘Pincha’ is strengthening and connecting the hand with the arm and the arm with the shoulder into the pelvis and the spine.

It is also of great therapeutic value if you are suffering from weak arms, shoulder pain, RSI and fatigue, and might also help with stress headaches.
