Garuda in Sanskrit means a fierce bird of prey, the vehicle of the Hindu God Vishnu, usually described as an Eagle. Like Eagle Pose, quite a few muscles are being stretched in this pose, including the rhomboids, the lower trapezius and the teres major. Try to encourage the shoulder blades to slide down the back while holding the pose.
