Benefits Of Garudasana
‘Garudasana’ means eagle pose. Garuda known as king birds also happen to be the vehicle of Vishnu. This asana would help in loosening up your joints.[sociallocker]While doing the asana, a sense of balance would be achieved as you are standing on one foot. It looks similar to you being wrapped within your own limbs. As this is a standing pose many beginners do not happen to find the right balance, for this they can use the wall to support the back. This can be done with different variations and can be very challenging. You should consult your doctor before doing any of the yoga poses. Even though these are very beneficial it would depend upon your body whether you can manage these asanas.
Even though this may look like a difficult asana but by regularly doing it you may master it and would be able to reap its benefits. The key for all the asanas is that you have to remain in that pose for at least 15 to 30 seconds which would be more beneficial for you. The key areas which this asana focuses are the ankles, calves, thighs, hips and shoulders.
The benefit which you can get from this asana is the strengthening and stretching of you ankles and calves. These areas which may be neglected would be treated well by this asana. The stretch would help your thighs, hips, shoulders and upper back. The pull which is created in this asana would help making you more relaxed. So when you are relaxed the level of concentration also improves as you are also keeping a check on your breathing while doing this exercise.
There is balance all over your mind body and soul which keeps you always in check for the better things in life.
