Yogis, we're almost there. Twelve straight days of yoga! What a journey!
Today we're doing Boat Pose, a more challenging posture that creates a sense of vigor and warmth. You will quickly recognize that Boat Pose works your abdomen muscles and so much more. Katie describes this bold posture:
My mother experienced times of great stress when she was struggling to achieve more than her body or spirit could handle. Trying to handle too much care for an aging mother, or working a job that only valued output versus quality of life, or swallowing anger at inconsiderate treatment and selfish behavior within her beloved congregation.
The boat that can glide atop the waves of a storm can make it through, while a boat that crashes through the waves will have a much tougher ride. Don't push your body to rise higher because you want to hit a certain level of the pose, or go as high as your neighbor. Use your breath to balloon the spirit in your body and be amazed at just how light and high you can feel.
Ride the waves of your breath as you rock your body gently, and safely, in this pose.
