Pincha Mayurasana – Forearm Stand

Welcome to an Inversion practice!

In this sequence, we are working on stretching the back body and stabilizing the core and shoulders to explore forearm stand. The forearm stand makes you more stable than the handstand because of the larger foundation that the forearms give. The prerequisites, however, are strength and openness, and those can be quite challenging. Take your time to ease out into this pose, no matter how long it takes. (Be careful while doing this pose if you have high blood pressure, spinal injuries, shoulder, elbow or neck injuries.)
