The WEEKEND CHALLENGE
It’s time for another WEEKEND CHALLENGE! Who’s ready? This week’s challenge is to see how long you can hold the boat pose!
If you’ve never heard of the boat pose before, it’s a yoga pose. It’s great for strengthening your core. See photo for a demonstration.
How to do it
Start seated with your knees bent. Keeping your spine long, lean back just far enough so your feet can float off the ground. Begin to straighten your legs together, making a V shape. Keep your arms extending forward and parallel to the ground. Stay balanced on the tripod of your tailbone and sit bones, chest lifted and gaze forward. Hold as long as you can. (Instructions taken from the Huffington Post’s website).
If you’ve never tried this pose before, it is a little tricky. If the first pose is too difficult and hard on your back, you can try an easier version. See photo.
Try Your Best
Try your best to hold the pose as long as you can! It’s always fun to try new exercises! Post a comment to let us know how you did!
