If you're having issues with the player:

Garuda means an eagle. The Eagle Pose develops ankle strength, removes stiffness in the shoulders and helps create poise and strength in a difficult balancing pose. Do your best to keep both the hips and the shoulders square forward when doing Garudasana. It stretches and tones muscles of the leg and can help relieve cramps of the legs. This pose can help with mental focus and serenity. Focusing on your breath and your gaze will calm your mind and allow you to stay stable in this pose.

I struggle with my visual focus - I feel like I can't look far as my arms are in front of my face - should I focus to the R or the L? Thanks,
