Accessing Malasana - Garland Pose
Malasana, also know as Garland pose or Yogic Squat, is a yoga asana that I see often in magazines and social media. It seems to fit the “image of a yogi” quite well; the yogi/yogini always seems grounded, comfortable, and peaceful.
The truth is, Malasana is a pose that is accessible to some yogis and yoginis and extremely uncomfortable for others. But with some adjustments and willingness to explore non-traditional approaches to this pose, Malasana can be quite beneficial to many practitioners.
