What are you really challenging in boat pose / navasana?
Hip flexors, hamstrings, thigh muscles, or your back?
The leg position has a big influence on what the focus of the posture is for many of us.

This video explains why practicing with bend knees is more likely to direct the effort to your hip flexor muscles.
Learn how and why more straightened legs can encounter resistance on the back of the legs and body.
Become a better practitioner when you know how stronger leg and thigh muscle use can detract from the hip flexors and weaken your core.
