Malasana -> Garland Pose or Squat Pose – – – – – – (please note that this is not the correct english translation) #Repost @clarejbyoga with @repostapp ・・・ MALASANA 🙌🏼 (Garland Pose) // My favourite yoga pose. Hands down. This incredibly grounding and activated posture is not one you see often in Western culture, but has amazing benefits when done correctly. Basic alignment: ✔️Toes out, heels in + grounded ✔️Light extension of lower back ✔️Long spine + neck ✔️Hands in prayer, elbows opening hips ✔️Chest open, shoulders back ✔️Gaze forward (NOTE: You can use a cushion / bolster under the sitting bones to create balance if your heels are not yet on the ground) . ✨BENEFITS: This beautiful pose tones the whole body, particularly leg and foot muscles, strengthens lower back and core, opens the hips and chest. Basically once you have it you could sit in it all day! ✨ Enjoy lovelies! Let me know what other poses you'd like posted and I'll get them up here for you! #ClaresYogaTips . For more guidance / alignment tips check out my FlexiFit and InvertFit eGuides out NOW via link in bio⬆️or my community account @selftaughtyogis . . **UPDATED COMMENT: Please understand this is a general guideline only. Due to the nature of Instagram I cannot include every specific alignment detail for the posture, such as exceptions to the rule or deeper anatomical advice** 💙
