Benefits of Bikram Yoga – Posture 4 (Gururasana/Eagle Pose)

The eagle pose is a great pose to practice as it is the only posture in the series that opens up 14 of the largest joints in your body.

what are the benefits of bikram yoga

Benefits of bikram yoga Eagle Pose:

  • Improves flexibility in the hips,knees, ankles and the rest of your joints.
  • Supplies fresh blood to the reproductive system and sex organs,  plus the kidneys and helps clear up reproductive problems

 Personal take:

Usually you are supposed to put your palms together like in the picture above, but I choose to interlock my fingers like in a prayer instead as it is easier for me. I always experience a deep feeling of compression when wrapping one leg around the other.

Sometimes, losing your balance is inevitable as you struggle to balance all your weight on one leg but it sure feels good when you do it correctly. It is usually after this pose that you are allowed to drink your first sip of water so hang in there!
