HOW TO GET INTO GARUDASANA Bend you left arm 90 degrees, moving the left elbow towards the right shoulder, keep fingers straight and pointing up. Bend your right arm the same way, hooking the right arm under the left elbow. Move both arms towards your centre, in front of your face. Relax your shoulders, inhale and allow your breath to create some space in your chest, heart, around your neck and shoulders, exhale and release the shoulders a bit further down away from the ears. If you have no pain or injury in your shoulders, you can now try to move your right hand towards the left hand, with the intention of making the palms of your hands meet.
