31 Days of Yoga – Boat (Paripurna Navasana)

Woo-Hoo! Day 28 sure does bring a challenge. You’ll feel great about yourself after mastering the Boat Pose! To say that this pose engages the core muscles is an understatement. Hello six-pack!

To perform: Sit down on your mat to begin. Bend your knees with your feet flat on the mat, hands at your side. Keep your back straight and lean back slightly. Raise your feet. Draw in your back while pushing your chest forward. Extend your arms straight ahead. Raise your lega to a 45 degree angle. Try to balance on your bottom while holding the position for 30 seconds. Relax.

Benefits of Boat Pose:

  • Stimulates abdominal organs, improving digestion
  • Improves balance
  • Strengthens spine, hips, & hamstrings
  • Relieves stress
  • Improves confidence
