Before you start with any asana or breathing exercise, it is always advised to start with a warm-up yoga.
Boat Posture (Navgasana)
Strengthens the stomach muscles. It releases stiffness around neck muscles
Increase Pancreas/Liver/Intestine/ Kidneys function (helps effective digestion process).
Maintain youngness in your body if you do regularly.
How to do?
Stretch your both legs and lie down on your back – Breath-in raises your arm over the head --
Breath-out bends forward and raises your legs to form like a boat as shown above (Remember your leg should be straight, don’t bend your knees and facial muscles should be relaxed).
Stay there in this position for 3 rounds of breath-in & breath-out cycle. After that breath-in go back to the normal position. Perform this for 2-3 times.
Those who have back pain don’t force to do more forward bending. Attempting this up to your comfortable level will relieve lower back pain in a longer run.
I will be narrating the steps to follow. Please watch the video and keep up.
