Mala is a Sanskrit term that means garland. In India, there are many different kinds of malas. There arejapamalas, made up of sacred beads strung on a thread which air used in prayer for counting and keeping focused on the repetition of a mantra. There are pushpamalas, which are garlands of vivid flowers, smelling of jasmine and other scents that are strung in the form of wreaths and offered in worship to deities in homes and temples. Guruji [Jois] here offers another kind of irra, which is ancient tradition, as sacred as a prayer, and as fragrant as flowers. His inala is a garland of yoga, in wind each riirtasa is like a sacred head to he counted and focused on, and each asoua is like a flower strung on the thread of the breath.
