In this last chapter is shown the psychological outcome suffered by the pilot, who finally ends up thinking like the Little Prince. With this, Saint-Expèry wants to tell u that it is perfectly possible to rescue within each one of us the soul of a child that once inhabited our body, our cortex.
…”And no older person will ever understand what for a child is so important”…
Never forget to be a little child at some point and go back to that naive and disinterested game…
With Pincha Mayurasana I invite you to play at the same time that to reach the position you have to be more present than ever, unite body, mind and soul… that is yoga!!!

PINCHA MAYURASANA – FETHERED PEACOCK POSE
The Pincha Mayurasana is a forearm stand and is also called the Feathered Peacock Pose. Just like a peacock that spans its feathers out, this asana is a beautiful, showy pose , which needs both skill and patience to perfect.
The forearm stand makes you more stable than the handstand because of the larger foundation that the forearms give. The prerequisites, however, are strength and openness, and those can be quite challenging, Take your time to ease out into this pose, no matter how long it takes.
Begin by coming closer to the wall. Now move your forearms and palms flat against the ground. By bending your elbows, make the upper arms perpendicular to your forearms .
Now flow into the Downward Facing Dog pose with your legs, an the bring your feet as close to your hands as possible.
Slowly, by bending one knee, start to kick it up with the help of the opposite leg. Your head should befitted from the ground, and your focus or gaze downwards the ground.
Now elevate both legs upwards to the full extent of your ability, AS they are lengthened to the maximum, you can start to take off from the support of the wall. Balance in this position as long as you are all to at first. It may be a few seconds at first. The mastery will come with repeated attempts where you endeavor to learn from each trial and apply what you learn to the next attempt.
Stay in the final pose from 15 to 30 seconds. In order to gracefully exit, slowly bring your legs down and return to the child’s pose. You may repeat the procedure after a few breaths of rest in a restoration pose such as Balasana or Savasana.
For beginners to yoga, the Pincha Mayurasana Pose is quite a beneficial pose as it focuses on vapors body parts like the pituitary gland. brain, arms, shoulders, legs, spine and lungs. If you are new to this yoga pose and find it difficult to perform, you may consider the following tip: buckle a yoga strap around your upper arms so that they don’t slide away from each other.
For advanced students or yogis, the Forearm Stand acts as a therapy against stress and tension. You can deepen the pose by eliminating any yoga blocks that you used previously and doing without them. Also try to balance yourself for longer durations rater than taking support from the wall.

Many people find this asana very difficult to do in the beginning. So they do half the asana, which is also acceptable.
