Eagle Pose

Updated: Sep 11, 2018

Eagle is the only posture that opens up the 14 largest joints in the skeletal system.


  • 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

Sit down low, weight in heels, hook the elbows and pull down, fingertips aiming to go below nose, leg up as high as possible on the thigh, foot wrapped.

Tips for Eagle Pose:

* 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 stomach in and off of the thighs

Fingers should go below the nose

Keep your palms together

Sit down low with your spine straight


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
