Day 2 of #yogiadventureschallenge & today we have Garland or Malasana pose in Sanskrit.
This a hip-opening pose that helps to lengthen and open the hips, creating more mobility for all of your daily activities. The Sanskrit name Malasana comes from two words: "Mala" - meaning "garland" and "Asana" - meaning "pose". In India, garlands of flowers or beads are often used as ritual offerings and altar decoration. Mala beads, also known as prayer beads, are traditionally used to assist with meditation.
This pose is traditionally used to help prepare the body for long periods of seated meditation and can help you connect with ancient rituals of yoga. This can lead you deeper into your own meditation practice and is a great set up for transitioning into arm balances like flying frog, crane or crow.
