Garudasana, eagle pose, from the ground up
Work on raising your elbows to shoulder height, but if your chest collapses, lower your elbow to the point where you can keep the chest broad.
Focus your drishti, or gaze, at an unmoving spot in front of you, or, if you can maintain your balance, gaze at your thumbs. Hold for 15 to 20 breaths, then slowly release the pose by uncrossing your arms first, followed by your legs. Repeat on the other side.
If your foot does not comfortably wrap around your standing leg, simply cross your leg and extend your foot in the direction you want it to go.
If you experience pain in your shoulders or back when you wrap your arms, keep them in anjali mudra instead.
If your hips twist to one side, practice garudasana at a wall by touching your buttocks lightly to the wall, not allowing them to move, to maintain an even alignment.
If you have trouble wrapping both your arms and your legs in this pose, treat your arms and legs as separate poses. First work on improving balance with your legs wrapped. Release, and practice wrapping your arms with your feet in tadasana.
