Boats (Boat and Bow Pose)
Beginner Poses • 1m 58s
Going on an adventure? Let's make all kinds of boats with Dan!
We'll start by practicing Boat Pose, a yoga pose that strengthens our core muscles and balance. Then we'll move on to bicycles, another exercise to strengthen our abdominals. Next, we'll practice a lateral stretch to lengthen our intercostal muscles. We'll move on to a wide legged forward fold, and end with belly boats, a.k.a. Bow Pose, to stretch out our tummies after all that core work!
