Gurudasana contains the essence of two words. The first is Gurud, which is the name of a bird called Gurud in Sanskrit and Eagle in English. This asana is named Garudasana because when performed, the person’s shape resembles that of a Gurud (Eagle). Each yoga asana has its own set of advantages. As a result, practicing Gurudasana has many advantages.

Press one thigh against the other. Repeat the procedure with the other hand and foot.
