Pose of the Week: Eagle Pose (Garudasana)

By MetroPowerYoga | In Blog | on December 2, 2014

GarudasanaEagle Pose (Garudasana) brings focus and stretches the ankles, calves and hips. It activates almost every joint in the body.

From Chair pose (Utkatasana) shift your weight to your left leg. Bend your right leg and lift your foot from the floor, crossing your right thigh over your left. Squeeze your thich muscles together and flex your toes. If you have the hip flexibility, hook right foot behind the left calf. With legs firmly rooted, sweep your arms out, crossing left arm over the right with palms touching. Lift through your elbows, pressing your hands away from your face while drawing your shoulders  down your back. Hold each side for 5-10 breaths. Repeat on the other side.

If you have trouble with balance, rest your back on a wall. If you can’t hook the lifted foot around the calf, put your toes down onto the ground or lift them and flex your toes (as shown).
