Tight hips, ankles or back? Try Eagle Pose!

Hey fellow yogis,

As someone who sits in an office all day and doesn’t always practice as much yoga as she preaches, I love poses that make a difference in how I physically feel with a minimal time commitment.  So, our pose of the post is Eagle Pose because of the amazing way it opens up the body. Try it after a rounds of sun salutations warm you up and finish with a five-minute Savasana.

Eagle Pose (Garudasana)
By stretching the upper back, ankles and calves, Eagle pose helps develop concentration and a sense of balance. Beginning in Chair pose, focus on each step as if they were each their own asanas and you will find your way into Eagle pose without feeling overwhelmed.
With knees bend and hips situated downward as if sitting in a chair, shift your weight into your left foot. Lift your right foot and cross your right thigh over your left. Bonus: if you can hook your right foot around your left calf, go for it. Remember, judgment serves no purpose: this is simply where your practice is today.
Cross your left elbow over your right and bring the palms of your hands together. Lower your fingers beneath your nose, hands intertwined.
