This is the basic level Dancer Pose. (Natarajasana) I consider this pose to be a high beginner or Intermediate level pose. It strengthens the legs, and opens the hip flexors, spinal column, shoulders and heart. A challenging balancing posture for sure.
I’ve been tweaking this posture since I first started practicing it sometime around the age of 50 (working with the wall.) Now 12 years later, I still find it quite challenging but also extremely rewarding. So now at 62, I try to come up into it once per day if at all possible!
At 61 I still have the goal of mastering the handstand – - I began this journey late in life, in my 50′s with absolutely no experience – no gymnastics background – nothing! – Over the years I’ve gotten stronger. Core strength and arm strength are critical for mastering this. For me the definition of “mastery” is just to let go of the FEAR. I recently started pumping iron again (7 weeks before my 62nd birthday). I’ve noticed that the handstands are coming easier now as my upper body gets stronger.
