What is happening in the posture:
Eagle pose opens the major joints. The arms and legs twist to create a tourniquet effect. Blood is reserved in the muscles of the thighs, calves, arms and fore-arms. When the arms and legs release, this blood flow flushes the joints helping to relieve joint problems and maintaining synovial fluid. The deep compression of this posture also massages organs and glands. Eagle pose particularity stimulates the reproductive system, making this a great pose for sexual vitality and fertility.

Mary Jarvis, during the posture, “if students are going to faint in class, they pass out during Eagle posture, Its effect is powerful!”
