  • Stand up straight—in an upright position—with both feet joined together and arms by your sides, i.e. Saral Tadasan.
  • Fix your eyes at a fixed point in front of you—slightly below the eye level.
  • Raise your right foot and intertwine the lower left leg with the right leg (especially left calf as shown in the figure) from the outer side.
  • Make sure that your right thigh rests on the left thigh; the top of the right foot lies on the left calf, and the right big toe lies just above the inner side of the left ankle.
  • As you inhale (Radhey), fold your arms and bring them in front of the chest; then place the right elbow crossing the left elbow.
  • Now, intertwine the forearms around each other, and join the palms to resemble an eagle’s beak, or form Namaste Mudra.
  • As you exhale (Krishna), slowly bend the left knee and lower your body until the right big toe touches the ground.
  • Stretch your spine more; then turn the hips to the left, and force both knees on either side.
  • Fixing eyes on a point, hold this final position to your capacity with normal breathing.
  • Return to the initial position as you inhale (Radhey); then slowly raise the body and eventually release the legs and hands.
  • Practice the same  process with the alternate set of legs and arms.
  • Lastly, come into Shithil Tadasan and relax.
  • On the balance and the focus at a fixed point
  • On the presence of “Radhey Krishna” in your each breath
  •   Garudasan is extremely good for sciatica, rheumatism, and hydrocele. 
  • The nervous system gets toned very well. 
  • The joints of the legs and the arms are made more flexible along with the rise of strength in the muscles. 
  • It also removes stiffness in the shoulder.
  • It offers a great relief in urinal problems. 
  • It is even recommended in case of cramps in the calf muscles for healing naturally.
  • Females are also benefited because reproductive organs are toned well, and the kidneys get activated with adequately oxygenated blood. 
  • Most Yog experts even consider this asan helpful in controlling sexual passion.
  • People with weak knees may avoid this practice.
