Mayurasana refers to a very popular yoga pose that involves assuming a peacock’s shape. Performing this particular pose has been known to yield quite a number of health benefits to the body. The following are key benefits of mayurasana.

1. Benefits the reproductive system

Mayurasana is one of the best exercises that you can perform if you want to boost your sperm count. By performing this pose regularly, you are likely to notice much thicker semen and it is also beneficial in women as it reduces congestion of the vagina. For women with menstrual disorders, then mayurasana will assist you to do away with that problem. After using this posture for several months, it offers total orgasm during intercourse.

2. Increases body strength

Doing this pose is a good exercise that could possibly assist you in strengthening your shoulders, back, abdomen as well as your arms. It also provides great exercise for the pancreas and the liver. Mayurasana is also beneficial for people with obesity and those in weight loss programs. It is effective in toning muscles and developing the chest.

3. Stimulates digestive organs

Mayurasana is quite regenerative and stimulating. This posture is very useful for all digestive organs. When you perform the mayurasana, blood is usually concentrated and then sent to various digestive organs. Through this action, this pose helps to increase the process of blood circulation, making certain that blood quickly reaches the desired places.

4. Reduces stress

Mayurasana helps in calming the brain, providing instant relief to mild depression and relieving stress. It enhances a person’s balance and improves mood as well. Furthermore, it is quite useful for people with diabetics.

A disadvantage of mayurasana is that it requires beginners to hold their breath when performing the pose. This action requires a lot of energy, particularly in the first days and thus it can be quite difficult to perform.

    Yes, initially it is tough. After regular practice you cannot live without it. I mean seeing the changes in your body in terms of strength and awesome digestion. The only precaution you need to take is to see that your elbow shouldn’t rub your stomach. Just fix your elbows on your navel area or a little more below towards abdomen and then it shouldn’t move at all from that point when you lift the whole body and reach to the ideal position of Mayurasana. It is better if you learn it from a yoga Acharya. Initially if you hurt because of the movement of elbows, that can be dangerous and you will never be able to continue it for months. Initially, do 2 rounds for 10 seconds and then increase the timing to 20 seconds, after a month may be, if you feel no pain in the abdomen area.In short, I would say, if you continue it for months with utmost care and patience, it is miraculous. Before doing it, massage your arms, specially the elbow area to make the muscles warm and flexible. Never do it without properly massaging and making your muscles ready to take the whole weight of your body. As I said patience and precautions will bring fruit.
