Garland Pose or Wide Squat (Malasana)

Garland Pose is also called Malasana and Wide Squat. It's basically a squatting pose. Garland Pose is a hip-opening yoga pose that can help to open and lengthen the hip, which means that it creates more mobility for your daily activities. The yoga pose increases circulation and blood flow in the pelvis and also improves your balance, focus and concentration.

Beginner’s Tip

If squatting is challenging, sit on the front edge of a chair seat with your heels on the floor just in front of your knees and your thighs at a right angle to your body. Between the thighs, lean forward with your torso.

Tip To Do -

1 - As in Mountain Pose, stand in the center of your mat and step your feet out as far as your mat allows.
2 - Now, bend your knees and lower your hips into a squat position.
3 - Separate your thighs so they are wider than your torso and keep your feet as close together as you can.
4 - Extend your torso and insert your upper arms into your knees. Bring your palms together in prayer positions and move your hands to your heart center.
