Take Flight

Take a new approach to Bakasana and get yourself airborne with ease.

By Andrea Ferretti. Sequence by Natasha Rizopolos

8. Garudasana (Eagle Pose)

Step or hop into Uttanasana (Standing Forward Bend), inhale to come up, and exhale into Tadasana (Mountain Pose). Come into Garudasana, with the left leg and right arm on top. Find a steady gazing point and then drop your tailbone as you lift your elbows up and away from your chest. Broaden across your shoulder blades and extend your sternum away from your navel. Hold for 5 breaths on both sides. Then stand in Tadasana for a few breaths.
