  3. Relieves tension and stiffness: Eagle pose can help release tension in the shoulders, neck, and upper back, which can be caused by poor posture, stress, or prolonged sitting.
  4. Stimulates the circulatory and lymphatic systems: The twisting action in eagle pose can help stimulate the flow of blood and lymphatic fluid, which can improve circulation, boost immunity, and detoxify the body.
  5. Calms the mind and reduces stress: Practicing eagle pose can help quiet the mind, reduce stress and anxiety, and improve concentration and focus.

How many things do you worry about? The mind is the main source of health and happiness. The same mind can completely rod you of all your health and happiness if you don’t train it properly. Whatever you are, be content. It sounds easy but it’s not If you have a contented mind, everything will just happen by itself. You won’t have to do anything. There is only one doer: the Cosmic Intelligence that does everything and works through everybody. Have faith, surrender!
