If you are in a larger body, perhaps you’ve groaned with frustration when your yoga teacher announces that the next pose is garudasana (eagle pose). The wrapping and tucking thighs and arms just doesn’t happen for those of us with bigger thighs, arms, or chests!

I’ve got options for you! Here are 4 variations for the legs and 4 variations for the arms – see what feels best in your body and create your own eagle combination!

Let me know how those variations worked for you or if you have any questions!
