Navasana & Malasana, otherwise known as boat pose & squat pose – two of my all time favourites!! Both are wonderful postures that can be adapted to be accessible to individuals in varying ways, I love the versatility of these postures, in addition to the many physiological benefits they offer: strengthening the core, legs, back, arms, as well as opening the ankles, feet, hips and lower back. I also find them both to be great opportunities to focus the mind during longer holds! An awesome combination if you ask me 😉
Here’s another video for those of you trying to start a home yoga practice. If you are practicing chair rather than floor yoga right now, then please feel free to do these exercises while seated in a chair of your choice 🙂 This one focuses on releasing the neck, shoulders and thoracic spine (the middle of your back), as well as stilling the mind of course 😉 I hope you will find it informative and helpful!
