Susan B Done!
Garudasana will improve balance, strengthen the legs, knees and ankles. It stretches and tones leg muscles and can relieve cramp. It also makes you look like you're desperate for a pee...who said yoga wasn't fun?
Hold for as long as is comfortable, 20-30 seconds for early attempts, then increase it. Repeat 2/3 times on each leg and smile.
Eagle Pose Challenge rules
- If you have trouble balancing rest against a wall.
- Not all types of physical activity are suitable for everyone. Users take Challenges and training advice at their own personal risk.
“Peak experience with this asana...doing this on the sundeck while bald eagles perched in a nearby Douglas Fir tree (if only they didn't whinny like cartoon horses...)”
