1. We begin in Utkatasana chair pose, to recap paddle stroke technique. with the strap training around the thighs. for our paddle stance. Alignment with hips over knees, knees over ankles, work the boundary of the strap.
2. Navasana boat pose, in the middle of your imaginary board. We’ll add on with a twist, setup with elbow to knee first. Back arm is like a kickstand, twist with your heart, your spine long and then start to lift the legs.
After working your boat pose, work the edge of building up your core muscles. Gain momentum with a rock from back to front, coming up into a squat. Try to not use your hands to get there. In the squat, place finger tips down on the mat out in front, gaze out and start to come back into your chair pose.
3. Utkatasana chair pose, working our way from seated to paddle stance. Finger tips down taking a revolve, hand to the hip.
Have fun adding these poses into your own yoga flow at home! Remember to repeat as necessary.
