YOGA CHALENGE: Eagle

YOGA CHALENGE:  Eagle

Here' the latest yoga challenge for you. It's a balancing pose called Eagle. It's great for stretching out your calves, ankles, hips, and upper back. When you're in it, you can imagine that you are perched high above the treetops, looking down upon the gorgeous world.

This is a powerful pose, but requires a calm stillness and a strong drishti to stay up.

Don't be shy - give it a try. I'm looking forward to seeing the photos you post in the YOGA CHALENGE Group.

  • Start in Mountain pose (like you're getting ready to do Tree pose).
  • Shift all your weight into your left foot, and lift your right knee up towards your chest.
  • Cross your right knee in front of your left knee, and bend both knees slightly, trying to wrap your right toes around the back of your left calf.
  • Now, keeping your drishti on one point in front of you, cross your right elbow over your left elbow. (Some people cross their left elbow over their right). Work on bringing your right fingertips towards the base of your left palm, and then lift your elbows straight up towards the ceiling.
  • Stay here for 5 breaths and then do the other side.

That's it. What'd you think? Not too hard, right? Can't wait to see the photos you post.

It was tough to stay balanced. Want to see my yoga bloopers? Then
