|As Salamu Alayka,|
That's my cup of tea. I know that Aisha Bewley's Homepage has many great articles on the Maliki Madhab, and a small, incomplete diagram on how to pray. Incomplete in the sense that you would think it would have the sunnah according to the Maliki Madhab, but it doesn't. As far as I know, there is no outline available online.
However, if you are just interested, I could explain to you how I perform salaat according to Maliki Madhab. Also, you must remember that within the Madhab, there are different ways as well. There is no definite, absolute, single way of praying according to Maliki Madhab.
There are also many articles that speak to misconceptions about the 'reasons' behind holding the arms and hands at the sides and raising the hands in every takbir except while sitting for sujud. There are really strong and convincing evidences from ahadith and amal so that the Maliki Madhab has remained prominent in areas of the world.
I know that Madhab chit-chat is limited on this board to respectful and open discussion if at all, so I will keep it simple and reserved.
I have had several brothers approach me at the masjid and tell me that I am praying like a Shia, or Ibadi. Even some mufti's and imams are reserved in their desire to discuss the proofs and ways of the Maliki Madhab, which I have found disconcerting in my efforts to learn more by approaching people. But alhamdulillah, I finally met some brothers from Tanzania and Africa who have helped me remain confident in the decisions I have made as far as Madhab is concerned.
Some great articles on the Maliki Madhab are by Dr. Yasin Dutton, Do a search using that guys name and you should come across several relevant ones. An article that I particularly liked was called The Vindication of the People of the Maghrib.
Hope it helps,
