Good health to all nude yoga practitioners! Today we will feature the Peacock in Lotus Pose. This is another yoga pose you need to jot down in your yoga journal. Mayurasana is one of the best detoxifying poses. This yoga pose is one of the first 15 asanas ever to be written down. And the first Yogis performing asana know its monumental health benefits.
The 15th and 16th century yogic sage in India, Yogi Swatmarama, best known for compiling the Hatha Yoga Pradipika – which introduced the system of Hatha Yoga, wrote: “Mayurasana quickly alleviates all diseases like enlargement of the glands, dropsy (edema) and other stomach disorders. It rectifies imbalance of the humours (vata, pitta and kapha). It reduces to ashes all food taken indiscriminately, kindles the gastric fire and enables destruction of kalakuta (toxins).
This certain yoga pose is named Peacock because of its strong, tonifying effect on the digestive system. It is said that a peacock can eat a vast range of foods which includes insects like scorpions, and even poisonous snake! The peacock can digest the poison of these animals without being harmed!
