Eagle Pose
This Bikram posture works into twelve major joints of the body and leaves the body warmed up and ready to continue into the next three balancing postures. Remain strong in your Eagle posture and you’ll be ready for “Party Time”.

Benefits:

Eagle Pose (Garurasana) gets broken down nicely in the image above. Part of Bikram Yoga’s Standing Series, this posture provides the following benefits: 
^ Good for the central nervous system
^ Facilitates lymphatic functions
^ Improves the immune system
^ Improves mobility of hip joint and balance
^ Strengthens the legs and calves
^ Strengthens the deltoid and trapezius muscles
^ Good for varicose veins
^ Eagle is the only posture that opens up the 14 largest joints in the skeletal system.
^ Beyond improving flexibility in the hips, knees, ankles and the rest, Eagle Pose also supplies fresh blood to the reproductive system and sex organs as well as the kidneys, which increases sexual vitality and helps clear up reproductive problems.

Tips For Eagle Pose:
^ Breath!
^ Keep your stomach in and off of the thighs
^ Fingers should go below the nose
^ Keep your palms together
^ Sit down low with your spine straight
^ Make sure to squeeze your knees and thighs together everywhere that you feel contact between the two to increase the tourniquet effect of the posture
^ Keep your weight on the heel of the standing foot and work toward having no gap between your wrapped foot and the back of your standing leg
