Naukasana (Boat Yoga Pose) has been named after the shape of a boat. Lie on your back with your feet together and arms beside your body. Lift your chest and feet off the ground, stretching your arms towards your feet. Your eyes, fingers and toes should be in a straight line. Feel the tension in your navel area as the abdominal muscles contract. Keep breathing while maintaining the pose. As you exhale, slowly come back to the ground and relax.
The key benefits of naukasana is that it strengthens the back and abdominal muscles. Tones the leg and arm muscles and is useful for people with hernia.
Yoga is an essential part of India’s ancient tradition of holistic living. The Art of Living, in association with Kent Health Care Products, presents to you the goodness of yoga through the series, ‘Yogic Fitness – An Introduction to Holistic Living’.
