Eagle Yoga Pose

Yoga Every Damn Day – As a part of A to Z April Blogging challenge, I am going to post a series of Yoga poses. Don’t worry I will keep it simple and crisp… and try not to make it boring.

I can see a new horizon underneath the blazing sky,
I’ll be where the eagles fly 
higer and higher 
– St. Elmos Fire

After transforming into a dog, crow, sunbird, camel; today I am an Eagle (Garudasana).

Benefits:
Strengthens and stretches the ankles and calves. Stretches the thighs, hips, shoulders, and upper back. Improves concentration. Improves sense of balance.

It does improve the balance. Initially I kept stumbling backward and sideways, but later, while listening to one of the tutorials I realized that I need to concentrate at one single point, all the time to maintain the balance.

  1. Garudasana… I have heard about this one I guess. πŸ™‚ will show these series to my sister. She is very much interested in Yoga and practices as well. Let us see how many asana she knows πŸ™‚

  2. Really clean asanas. You've been doing Yoga for a long time, haven't you? I'm think I'm going to start surya namaskar again after this AtoZ. You have inspired me! πŸ˜€
