Forearm Balance

Pincha Mayurasana

Forearm Balance (Forearm Stand, or Feathered Peacok) is an advanced inversion and arm-balancing posture that strengthens the entire back, the core muscles, the arms and shoulders. It improves focus and balance, and relieves stress. The Sanskrit name of the pose is Pincha Mayurasana, which comes from pincha: 'feather', mayura: 'peacock', and asana: 'posture'.
