Today I took again a couple of pictures of pincha mayurasana exercises.
Picture: the head is lifted
Picture: the head is in line with the back
Picture: the head is in line with the back and I bend the knees to get closer to the body
No matter what I do, it’s impossible to bring the back parallel to the wall. It’s also possible to get into pincha mayurasana from the above positions, but then one has to swing and this is very difficult. I also think that one has to get controlled into a yoga pose. That’s why it’s a first goal to bring the back parallel to the wall.
My hamstrings are flexible enough. The issues are the shoulders.
To press the feet against the wall might be indeed a good exercise…..
