My theme for this year’s #atozchallenge is – 26 Yogasana. So brace yourself for 26 days of stretching, backbends and inversions, as I take you along my upside down evenings, sincerely hoping that you will find these posts helpful 🙂
Navasana or Boat Pose
Navasana or the Boat Pose is an awesome core building asana that you can do just about anywhere. It looks so simple but when you have to hold it for long, you can start feeling all the hidden muscles in your abdomen and legs and arms. This pose will make you aware of your breathing, while strengthening your abdominal muscles to support the lower back. Check out my video as I play with half and full Navasana.
Keep your back straight, engage your core and you are ready to row the boat.
