I loved seeing your fishies last week and can’t wait to see your boat poses this week! Thanks for letting us into your summer fun.

Remember, you can wear a swimsuit in your photo, but you don’t have to in order to win one. #BikiniYogaChallenge features a different weekly giveaway now through July 23.

#DashworthyYogaChallenge Week 6: Boat Pose

Sanskrit name: Paripurna Navasana

How to Do Boat Pose:

  1. Sit on the floor with legs straight out in front of you. Sit up straight then lean back slightly. Shift your weight onto your sitting bones and tailbone.
  2. Bend your knees, lift your feet off the floor. Start with knees bent, lifting shins parallel to the floor. If strong here, straighten legs, raising your toes above eye level. Lengthen through tailbone.
  3. Stretch your arms alongside legs, parallel to one another and the floor. Shoulder blades come down and away from your ears.
  4. The belly is firm but not hard and thick. Keep the lower belly flat. Engage jalandhara bandha (throat lock) by tucking the chin slightly to lift the base of the skull away from the back of the neck.
  5. Hold for 10-20 seconds. Gradually increase your holding time to one minute. Release the arms and legs with an exhalation, sit upright on inhalation.

Benefits:

  • Stimulates prostate and thyroid glands, kidneys and intestines.
  • Strengthens the abdomen, hip flexors and spine.
  • Improves digestion.

Okay, so maybe I have a soft spot for Spanish brands (and Spanish style in general!) Fun fact: I studied abroad and lived in Madrid, Spain my junior year of college where I absolutely fell in love with the culture.

I LOVE Spanish style and was immediately drawn to the bright colors, interesting styles and overall PilyQ line. They also feature beautiful yoga wear, too!

Fall in love, like I did, with PilyQ Barcelona: Pilyq.com.

Congratulations to #BikiniYogaChallenge Week 5 Winner: Shree
