Eagle Pose is one of the 26 postures you will learn in my class. There was a time when I couldn't wrap my arms around each other, nor my thighs. But when you stay consistent in your practice, the mind and body will transform and adapt. The eagle pose is the only pose that affects all 14 major joints of the body at once: the shoulder joints, elbows, wrists, hips knees and ankles ( 7 joints on each side of the body). Eagle also improves blood circulation of the reproductive system, genital organs and kidneys, which improves sexual vitality. Eagle pose perfectly strengthens parts of the lower body such as the hips and thigh muscles. For the upper parts of the body, eagle strengthens the dorsal oblique muscles, the trapezium and the deltoid muscles. Conscious movement takes great awareness and concentration. For athletes, this can increase the mental focus and functional movement of the limbs.
