The Lord of the Dance Pose is a challenging balancing pose with deep meaning and many variations. Natarajasana is derived from the Hindu god Shiva. The dance represents the energy of the universe.
- Start in Tadasana. On an inhale, lift your left foot, such that the heel is placed towards the left butt and your knees are bent.
- Transfer your entire body weight into your right foot and keep your dristy by looking at one single, non-moving point in front of you.
- Keeping your torso upright, take a hold of the left foot from the outside with the left hand.
- Make sure to avoid compressing your lower back by pressing your tailbone towards the floor and keeping both bhandas actively engaged.
- Slowly lift your left foot up, away from the floor and back behind you.
- Extend the left thigh behind you and parallel to the floor and simultaneously stretch your other arm forward. Hold this pose for about 5 to 7 breaths, release and repeat on the other side.
