The trend of performing yoga on water has caught the fancy of many who swear by the benefits of the ancient practice of yoga. Paddleboard yoga will revitalise you and help you become more in-tune with your poses, while you enjoy floating on water. Your entire midsection and your core muscles get engaged in this practise as you try to balance yourself on the water. This waterborne yoga will help improve your balance and concentration. This video will help you with the steps of ustrasana or camel pose on a paddleboard.
When you perform ustrasana or camel pose on the paddleboard, the front of your body, ankles, thighs and groins get stretched. This helps you lose weight from your entire body. The pose stimulates abdominal organs, increasing blood flow to the uterus, helping it heal faster. It also relieves backache and helps your body relax.
A word of caution: Make sure you do not perform this pose if you have neck or back pain, high blood pressure or suffer from migraines.
