Here’s a way I love to work with eagle pose (garudasana) - and I think you might agree with me that the finale of this sequence is the best part! . Start in a reclined position and intertwine your limbs into eagle pose. (**Side note: a wonderful yogi tagged me recently in a post about the important matter of which arm/leg should be on top in eagle pose 🤔 . She said she’d referenced several books and found the authorities to be divided on whether eagle should be done with *opposite-side* limbs on top (R leg & L arm on top), or the *same-side* limbs on each side on top (R leg & R arm on top). She wondered which one was “correct”? . For my part, I’ve personally always heard and taught opposite-side limbs on top, but I think that ultimately, it’s beneficial to be able to do the pose in *all* ways. You know? . What do you think? Is one way correct or not, and why? Also, I’m so sorry that I can’t remember who it was who tagged me in that post - if it’s you & you’re reading this, let me know in the comments! **End of side note 😀) . Sooo back to our reclined eagle sequence here: push your low back down into the ground as you curl up and tap elbow to knee; then keep your low back connected to the floor as you un-curl and slide your arms & legs away from each other. . Repeat a few times for some good core work, and then roll onto your side. . Unwind your eagle arms and open & rotate your top arm & chest out to the side for a perfect reclined spinal twist. . Let me know how it goes if you decide to practice or teach this core-focused idea! 💙 . . . . . #eaglepose #garudasana #corework #corestrength @jenni_rawlings jenni_rawlings Jenni Rawlings

Totally gonna use this in my classes!!!! The way you get into the revolved twist, great one! I've always wondered what's with using opposite arms, in gomukhasana too, perhaps is part of the yoga mystery.

I love this....the ravelling when standing is so hard for so many people but this they can be a Low flying eagle 🦅 xxx

Oh yeeees love the final twist. As for eagle abs I have no clue why but for me this is the hardest abs exercise. I always end up trembling. As for the which leg/hand goes on top -I've always learned and did the opposite ones but I could not agree with you more on this. It is important to practice balance in all so opposite and the same would be my choice now.

Jenni.... I love your posts. I have been implementing your sequences in my classes and my students love them. I can’t thank you enough. Miss you..

Nice! I often do the eagle leg twist in classes it feels so good. I also use eagle arms in other poses like airplane, goddess, crescent, etc.
