yp_peacock.GIF (8612 bytes)

Technique

  1. Kneel with the knees about 12 inches apart.
  2. Place the hands, palms down on the floor between the knees with the wrists to the front.
  3. Bend forward until the abdomen is resting on the elbows.
  4. Then raise the body and legs to a horizontal position with the legs outstretched as a letter V. The horizontal body is now resting on the hands with the forearms vertical. Hold the position for a few seconds only.

Benefits:

  1. This posture is very good for the digestive organs. The blood is concentrated and sent to the digestive organs, which also get toned up by the intra-abdominal pressure.
  2. This exercise has a good effect on the expelling action of the colon. It is very beneficial for obesity, piles, and constipation.
  3. It develops the chest.
  4. The exercise is very regenerative and quite stimulating.

Note: This exercise is not suited to women.
