Garland Yourself - Preview

Iyengar with Marla Apt

This sequence of forward bends gradually prepares your hips, spine, and shoulders for the intensity of compact asanas like malasana and kurmasana. Begin with supine hamstring stretches, and continue with garudasana and marichyasana I. Learn the various stages of malasana from the beginning of squatting to the more challenging actions of garlanding oneself with the arms for your full expression of tortoise pose. Approach these poses with a greater sense of alignment and ease. Props Needed: Three blankets and a strap.
