My favourite inverted yoga pose and favourtie arm balance is Pincha Mayurasana – feathered peacock. It works the upper body but using the forearms instead of the hands and wrists makes it more accessible than some of the other arm balances. It can be scarey for some yoga students to practice inversions but once you have practiced some preparatory poses, gained confidence and had a supportive teacher spotting you, it is a revelation how wonderful it feels to be in an inverted asana. Next time you feel that your world has been turned upside down by some disruptive event in your life off the yoga mat, you can remember how good it can feel to be upside down.
Join my classes in Woodley, Earley, Reading to practice inverted yoga poses.
