Day 7 of the #wildlove30days yoga challenge!
Boat pose, the posture that everyone loves to hate even faithful Ashtangis may be willing to skip one of these in their practice! BUT we don't skip it, we don't avoid it and we certainly need to face it head on. As boat pose is a core posture it connects to the Solar Plexus chakra. This energy is all about motivation, will power, inner strength and facing problems head on, sound familiar? Core strength not only makes our body incredible strong it also organises the mind into a place of structure, strength and a powerful productive mind.
Boat Pose - Navasana
1. Starting from seated with the knees bent gently hug the fingers under the outer knees.
2. As you inhale lift the heart and lengthen through the waist & spine, as you exhale draw the belly in and away from the thighs. Press the back of the head back to encourage a little lightness within the feet!
