#BodhiLoveYogaChallenge | Navasana

Pose: Navasana Boat Pose

Affirmation: I Love My Tummy

Week 3: Balance Poses

Strengthens and Stretches: Abdomen, hips and spine.

How To Do It: Sit on the floor with your legs out in front of you. Place hands behind hips with fingers pointing toward the feet. Inhale, lift the knees up so shins are parallel to the mat. Draw the heart and chest up, growing the spine long to reduce rounding in the back. Exhale, stretch the arms alongside the legs, parallel to the mat with palms facing up. Continue to draw abs toward navel. If possible, begin to straighten the knees, raising tips of toes slightly above eye level. Breath here for 5 full rounds of breath.

When To Do It: Throughout the day to improve core strength and reduce back pain. Incorporate this pose in the beginning and middle of your yoga practice to warm up the body.
