An Autumn Yoga Pose
Garudasana = Eagle Pose
This pose targets the Lungs (yin) & Large Intestines (yang). The meridians of these two Fall paired organs run through the inner & outer arms. In Garudasana we take a deep bind of the arms & legs, while maintaining a strong rooted balance of the standing foot. Opt to fold your torso forward & place a squeezing pressure on the Large Intestines themselves. The binding & compression creates a stoppage of energetic flow for a few moments but upon release, you flush your meridians & organs themselves with fresh energy & oxygenated blood, stimulating cleanse & rejuvenation. This pose requires great focus & stability. Qualities needed during those windy Autumn days.
