Boat Pose (Navasana) Variation with Blocks

Just like regular Boat Pose (Navasana), this modified version strengthens the core and hips, while stretching the hamstrings and shoulders. It aids in digestion, improves balance, and relieves stress.

Placing blocks between the hands and thighs helps to keep them in alignment with the shoulders and hips, preventing the extremities from drifting out of alignment.
