Eagle pose relieves tension in the neck, shoulders and legs. This posture strengthens the lower extremities and increases mobility in the hip girdle. By creating pressure in the joints, you stimulate the synovial membrane, the oil can of the joint.
The muscles worked in this posture: sartorius, gastrocnemius, soleus, peronius longus/brevis, abductor mangus/longus. Eagle prevents varicose veins and counteracts cellulite.
Squeezing everything together, the goal is everything in one line, shoulders, hips, knees, ankles. Gain balance by leaning back. Squeeze thighs to sit deeper.
