'Yoga With Onmanorama', is a series from us that will help you practice and achieve steadiness in your asanas. Through this series, we will challenge you with one new asana every week. Readers can share their pictures or videos doing the asana with the hashtag #YogaWithOnmanorama and we will feature them in an article at the end of every week.
Caution: Before taking up the challenge, go through the 'Who shouldn't do it' bit of every asana and follow it.
Garudasana derives its name from the word Garuda, which means eagle in Sanskrit.
