Yogasana: The Eagle Stance #atozchallenge

My theme for this year’s ย #atozchallenge is – 26 Yogasana.ย So brace yourself for 26 days of stretching, backbends and inversions, as I take you along my upside down evenings, sincerely hoping that you will find these posts helpful ๐Ÿ™‚

Garudasana or Eagle Pose

This is the closest I could ever look like one of those Kunfu Panda Warriors … ready to pounce with my twisted arms and legs ๐Ÿ˜›

This pose helps to improve balance and if you have trouble balancing, then practice near the wall or take the support of a high chair or table. The flexibility will come slowly with practice.

  1. Eagle? Shouldn’t Crane be more appropriate (I’m just thinking out loud here).
    This looks “try-able” though. I’ll send you pictures of the fractures.

  2. So impressed with your theme, and fitness!! Go, you! Double thumbs up!

    I’m the laziest-bone couch potato in the history of couching or potatoeing – can I call it an asana also? It’s also a pose, right? ๐Ÿ˜€


  3. I used to go to yoga class during school days. I remember this aasana clearly because while practicing this, my friend fell on me and I, trying to balance, held the hand of another and pulled her down with me too ๐Ÿ˜€ the teacher was too shocked to react for few seconds!

  4. Wait. Aren’t you standing on your toes in this? Toes of only one foot?
    I currently have difficulty in standing still on the toes of BOTH my feet!

  5. Your theme is interesting. At one point i’ could do most of the asanas with ease. Now, I don’t think my body is that flexible to do most of the asanas but will sure try this one. Looks easy.

  6. That looks pretty close to me! Great to know this exercise for improving balance. Something we will all probably need help with as we age.

  7. I think I need to do something like this one to improve my balance. I tried yoga years ago and enjoyed it but I think I frustrated the teacher with my lack of coordination.
    Thanks for visiting my blog.
