Garland Pose is a hip-opening yoga posture that helps to lengthen and open the hips, creating more mobility for all of your daily activities.
The Sanskrit name for this pose, “Malasana” comes from two words:
“Mala” — meaning “garland”
“Asana” — meaning “pose”
Sometimes called, “Yogi Squat,” Malasana is a preparatory position for the arm balance, “Crow Pose” (Bakasana).
Take a seat into this pose. Strengthen your legs, your heart and your ability to tap into coming to a peaceful place despite how your body may feel here. It is within the pose, when you want to come out the most that you can find the deepest, most peaceful kind of pose.
