The Eagle Pose is done in the standing pose by balancing on a single leg with the other leg wrapped around it. Garudasana or The Eagle Pose can be practiced by everyone, except those suffering from severe arthritis of the leg joints. If you can maintain a sense of balance by standing on one leg, then you can easily attempt this pose though it requires a great deal of practice to master Garudasana as it requires you to balance the entire body on one leg.
Like other asanas, it is considered best when Garudasana or The Eagle Pose is practiced early in the morning. However, if because of some reason, you are not able to practice it in the morning, you can practice Garudasana or The Eagle Pose in the evening as well. Mornings are preferred as the food is digested and your body has the energy to perform the asanas. But make sure that when you are practicing Garudasana or The Eagle Pose in the evening, you should have your food five to six hours before you practice as your food takes this much time to digest.
