Benefits of Mayurasana (Peacock Pose):
1. Strengthens the digestive fire: in the yogic tradition, the navel is considered the focal point of the digestive fire. The imbalances in the navel are the main cause of digestive problems and many diseases. The placement of the elbows on the sides of the navel strongly affects the imbalance of the navel, which leads to strong digestion and radiant health.
2. Turn on transformations: strong digestion, one of Mayurasana’s health benefits, can earn more reward points than adding an extra piece of delicious delicacy. Greed, anger and lack of spirituality develop in you when digestion is mediocre and needs to be eliminated. The increase of digestive prana in the peacock posture leads to a healthy excretion of toxins and causes enthusiasm, vitality, friendship, self-confidence, the strengthening of the peacock.
3. Tones Muscles and abdominal organs: in Mayurasana, the pressure on the abdomen stimulates the plexus and the organs of the liver, the spleen, the kidneys, the gall bladder, the pancreas and the circulatory system. As a result, Mayurasana tones the abdominal muscles and strengthens the abdominal organs. The well-designed and functional body functions of the Peacock pose are guaranteed with the utmost dedication.
4. Strengthens the wrists and forearms: when balancing the upper body on the upper arms, move the weight in your hands and firmly lock the forearms during the posture, strengthen your wrists and forearms in the peacock posture. The benefits of Mayurasana on the health of the wrist and forearm make it one of the most effective methods to work in these two often neglected areas.
5. Stimulate the Manipura Chakra: The Manipura Chakra is located above the navel or slightly below the solar plexus. When the elbows are buried in the navel, the Manipura chakra is activated. The Manipura Chakra is the place of clarity, security, happiness and knowledge that will change your mental and spiritual health.
6. Activate the Kundalini: One of the spiritual benefits of keeping the peacock is the awakening of Kundalini energy. When the Kundalini energy appears, many mental and emotional changes occur, which causes you to take the spiritual path.
7. Hull and healthy legs: in Mayurasana you strengthen your back and legs due to the position of these areas of the body. A robust body is a key to a life of well-being and an attractive appearance.
Embrace with Mayurasana the powers and grace of the peacock.
