How to Achieve the Dancers Pose
Natarajasana or Lord of the Dancer's Pose that requires and builds full-body strength, flexibility, and coordination.
- Stretches the chest, abdomen, shoulders, thighs, hips, groin, and ankeles
- Strengthens legs and ankles
- Increases balance, flexibility, and coordination in the spine, shoulders, and hamstrings
- Begin in standing pose keeping the core and knee caps fully engaged
- Shift the weight to one side of the body
- Exhale and bend the knee
- Clasp the inner ankle with the same side hand as the lifted leg while simultaneously extending the opposite arm up. This helps to maintain the balance in the pose
- Inhale, reach back with the lifted leg and folding forward
