Garland pose (Malasana)

by | Jun 12, 2020 | Yoga Poses

Benefits

  • Stretches the ankles, groins and back torso
  • It tones the belly.
  • Instigates metabolism.
  • Increases flexibility in your ankles and knees.

Tip

If twisting is difficult, sit on the front edge of a chair seat, thighs forming a right angle to your torso, heels on the floor slightly ahead of your knees. Lean your torso forward between the thighs.

How to do

  • Begin by squatting. As you do this, keep your feet close to each other, with your heels on the floor or supported on the ground.
  • Spread out your thighs, placing them slightly wider than your torso.
  • Exhale and lean forward such that your torso fits snugly in between your thighs.
  • Bring your palms in the Anjali Mudra (prayer position), and press your elbows against the inner thighs. Doing this will help you extend the front part of your torso.
  • Press the inner thighs against the side of the torso. Then, stretch your arms out, and swing them across such that your shins fit into the armpits. Hold your ankles.
  • Hold the pose for a few seconds. Inhale and release.
