Yoga poses – Best ab workouts for core strength

Boat pose or navasana posture is one of the
most effective postures to help strengthen the core muscles. Many variations of this
posture help to build strength and go deeper and deeper into the core. Start in a seated posture on the mat. Bring
the feet together, knees touching. Take the palms on to the inside of the knees,
inhale, lengthen through the spine, making sure you are sitting on your sitting bones. As you lengthen, inhale and lean back, coming
on to the toes and very slowly lift the feet up, bringing the lower legs parallel to the
ground. And then if this feels good, inhale, straighten the arms up. All the while keep
your back nice and straight, toes pointing out. Inhale and exhale, breathing nice and
freely and you can hold here for five to ten breathe and then when you are ready to release,
just take the palms onto the back of the knees, relax the feet down and there you go – Boat pose!
