Eagle pose strengthens the back, creates space between the shoulder blades, builds up and steadies the thighs and calves as well as increases concentration. Follow the below-mentioned steps to do it correctly:



  • Stand in a comfortable position with your feet together. Straighten your arms in front of you and then bend your knees a little into chair pose and lift your right leg off the floor.
  • Wrap your right thigh across the left calf.
  • Bend both your elbows to make right angles while your forearms are perpendicular to the floor.
  • The left elbow and the wrist should cross over the right elbow and wrist.
  • Bend lower and get closer to the floor to stretch all the muscles. Remember to focus on your breathing as well,
  • Exhale and untangle your hands. Do the same with your legs and stand upright again. Now repeat with the other side for toned calves and thighs!
