How to do naukasana

Naukasana or Navasana widely known as the Boat Pose is a great pose for strengthening the core. The Sanskrit name Naukasana derives from two words, the first Nauka which means the boat and the second Asana which means posture. In this asana, the whole body appears to be shaped like a boat and is fully balanced on the buttocks. It gives an intense stretch to the abdomen and strengthens the muscles of the back and abdomen. There are many other benefits of Naukasana, but first of all, let's start by knowing the steps to practice Naukasana.
