Thank you so much, this lesson on navasana is beautifull, I learned a lot from it and you answered many of my questions on this pose, thank you again.
The article starts with 'These introductory versions of Boat Pose' and later 'When you've mastered the previous postures'. What previous postures? Where are they?
Beautiful written, very clear, very encouraging.
I have been struggling with this pose ever since. Now Iook forwards to a new beginning.
I've been doing yoga for almost two years. So far one of my major difficulties is doing the boat pose or paripurna Navasana. The real problem is that I can't lift up my legs straight. I mean, I can lift them but they are always bending.
My questions are:
1. Is this because of my anatomy? I mean I've heard that some people can do some poses easily while others can't and vice versa. It says that because everybody has different anatomy.
2. If this is due to my anatomy, will I never be able to do it perfectly?
3. I find it hard to balance on my sacrum. Does the thickness of the mat affect our balance while doing paripurna navasana?
4. What can I do to improve my boat pose?
