When we hear the name Navasana, or Boat Pose, for the first time in a yoga class, we might think we’re in for a sweet and sunny experience, but for many of us, Boat Pose can be anything but.

But sunny skies and calm seas are ahead! Check out the video below for the kinesiological keys to a happy, strong and cohesive boat pose.
