The Benefits Of The Malasana

Posted by alicefarnadize on March 9th, 2017

Malasana also known as Upavesasana or Garland Pose is a very simple but highly beneficial yogasana.

Here are some health benefits of Malasana.

  • This yogasana gives the groin, the hips, the sacrum, and the lower back a great stretch.
  • It has a great effect on your metabolism; this improves the same.
  • It makes your digestive system healthy.
  • Malasana brings your belly in shapes.
  • This improves your body posture.
  • You notice a great flexibility in your knees and ankles.

However, this yogasana is not good for those who have lower back injuries or injuries in their knees.

If you do not have any injuries in your lower back or knees, you must do this exercise.

How can you do this exercise?

Here are the steps:-

  • Start this by squatting. Keep your feet very close to each other, and heels should be on the floor.
  • Now, spread out your thighs wider.
  • Now, leaving the breathe, lean forward in a way that your torso fits in your thighs.
  • Now, join your palms in a way that you join them to anjali and press your elbows against your inner thighs. This will increase the front side of your torso.
  • Now, press your inner thighs against the side of your torso. Then stretch out your arms and swing them in a way that your shins fit your armpits.
  • Now, hold your ankles, remain in the pose for 10 seconds, and then take a long breath and leave that breath.

However, this would be better to reach a professional yoga trainer who has taken yoga teacher training from a reputable yoga center, as he would be able to give you the right instructions and let you know how you can get maximum advantage from this asana.
