13 MALASANA VARIATION Garland Pose
Move your feet under your hips, slightly externally rotating your legs and feet. Bend your knees to lower into a squat. Try to keep both feet rooted firmly into the ground as you lengthen your spine. It’s OK if your heels lift a little. Place a block between your palms, and lengthen your arms up alongside your ears. The goal here is not to collapse your lower back but to draw in your core, lengthening through your spine. Keep your legs engaged with your inner thighs active and your arms vigorously reaching up—working on maintaining upper-thigh to rib connection. Hold for 10 seconds, and repeat 3 times.
