Day 5 - Garland Pose
Pose: Garland Pose - Malasana
Alignment: Starting from a standing position part the feet the width of the mat or wider than the hips. Heels in, and toes out, externally rotating the thighs. Resting the hands on hips, or forwards start bending the knees to find a deep squat. You might need to reconfigure the feet to get the bum lower of knees wider! Find your seat, you can ever put props beneath the bum. Hands to prayer in front of the chest, or find a lovely twist reaching one arm high. This can also be done in a chair, knees and feet wide and simply drape the upper body forwards towards the ground.
Benefits: Opens the hips, releases lower back tension. Strengthens ankles and feet. Aids digestion. Enjoy a daily posture on INSTAGRAM & FACEBOOK to keep you inspired, motivated and playful!
