Navasana is known as the boat pose because when you look at the asana it would resemble a boat. This asana seems to be very easy with the way it looks. But as you all know, looks can be deceiving which is the case over here.

With the passage of time our back seems to face the wrath of every other problem and happens to suffer the most. It strains a lot due to the improper way of sitting. This improper way of sitting may stretch for hours causing lot of stress to the back.

This asana would help you with your back and make it much stronger with added vigor and agility. When you do this pose you can easily imagine the pressure applied on your abdominal organs. Your midsection area gets easily strengthened due to this posture.

You can hope to have a clear stomach without flab if you do this asana regularly.

The sagging body mass is prevented as it lengthens the back muscles making it sleek and agile, like a thorough gymnast.

This yoga asana helps in toning the intestines which is very effective, making the intestine work the maximum without over exerting. When further variations are applied to this asana to make it difficult, the asana reacts to the difficulty by providing more benefits.

One has to remain in this posture for least couple of minutes to utilize the maximum benefits. This asana also proves to be very useful for your liver, gall bladder and spleen which are some of the most important organs of your body.

As the midsection is compressed, it gets benefited by toning the muscles. It also strengthens the spine, which is beneficial for your back too. There is an improvement in your digestive system due to the better performance of the intestines as it helps relieve the stress it goes through.

Your legs and thigh muscles are also strengthened. Your buttocks are the one which is trying to keep you in balance and due to this pressure it also helps the buttocks to make it much firmer with daily practice
